      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.57 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:heart: , 8:heart:
      4 folds, SB raises to $1,50, Hero calls $1,00.

      Flop: ($3,00) 2:club: , 7:heart: , 7:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $2,25, Hero calls $2,25.

      Turn: ($7,50) T:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $6,75, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $7,50

      3bet pf? the thing is, my hand actually has good playability in position, whereas if I 3bet and get called I usally allways am dominated. Can I call this flop or is it just raise or fold?

      defending preflop is ok. i like calling morre often then 3beting in this situation . but if you call the flop you are calling with the intention of floating him and taking down the pot on a later street ( not looking to hit necesary smthing)

      Against aggressive player I like to 3-bet pf or fold, since if you hit A or 8 then you´re often facing 3 barrels which isn´t that nice.
