      Prima, $0.10/$0.20 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (BTN): $22.21 (111.1 bb)
      SB: $29.83 (149.1 bb)
      BB: $38.84 (194.2 bb)
      UTG: $19.54 (97.7 bb)
      MP: $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $20 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K:spade: K:club:
      UTG calls $0.20, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.10) 7:diamond: 4:heart: 6:spade: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.50, UTG raises to $3, Hero raises to $8.50, UTG calls $5.50

      Turn: ($19.10) J:club: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $12.81 and is all-in, UTG calls $10.14 and is all-in

      River: ($39.38) 8:club: (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      56/14 55% agg. freq. 22hands.

      I think it`s standart to play the hand this way vs villain, who looks like agro fish? I can get value from 7x, draws, pair+draw, sometimes 88-TT?

      I just muck flop like a nit.

      Just too many hands that have me in bad shape when he limp/calls. Keep in mind he has a raising range so you maaaybe can put 88, 99 and TT as overplayed hands in a very optimistic scenario so those are 18 combos but TT becomes more unlikely imo.

      Now, he has 9 set combinations, 2 76s combos, 2 64s combos, 2 74s combos, 4 35s combos which means 19 combos that have you in bad shape. This means, in order to want to stack off you need him to overplay more and more A7, T7 type hands. His 75, 65 hands are basically flipping with you so I don't count them much as good or bad for you.

      So what do you suggest?

      Folding seems weak.

      If i just call i let him fold his weaker hands if turn and river are high cards,also i let him draw cheaper and pay him off when he has me beat?

      I can fold turn or river if the bord gets really ugly, but i don`t think that`s a good result.

      It would take me about 5 seconds to fold vs the minraise.

      It's just hard to be ahead of his range and you don't have 'outs' when you are behind.

      If you constantly see people check/raise 72 and whatever other weak 7x hands they have in their limping range then 3betting is fine but I only see people call all their mediocre hands so in my mind his range becomes sets, 2 pair, pair + draw and maybe a few overplayed overpairs. Against that range I can't really call and if I get it in I'm behind.
