      Villain is 17/16/5 on 137 hands. My question here is if it is OK to raise that cbet if he is cbeting 89% of the time on 10 hands. (i know it is not big sample but it is some kind of info). Ofcourse i doubt he is 3 betting on flop with air...

      Give me your opinion how would you play this hand versus this villain. Call preflop then fold to bet?PokerStars - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players

      SB: 200.4 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has 7:diamond: 7:heart:

      UTG raises to 4 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls 3 BB

      Hero checks, UTG bets 6 BB, Hero raises to 16 BB, UTG raises to 52 BB, fold

      HI Dadaas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Considering that he is UTG and his range is full of high cards I actually don't mind our play. He can fold some better hands like 88/TT but also his equity in the hand with overcards/backdoors.

      The size you chose is fine too although a bit small OOP.

      And folding to his 3bet is ok? He sure is not bluffing this kind of action?

      Is there a player on this level that will rebluff me with air and how will his stats look like? Will he be nitty or more like a aggro player that plays 50/50
