      Hero shows 7:club: 8:spade:

      SB wins $3.50

      Usual guy, least 2/5 are like him i am having usually no idea how to adjust properly. Raising this pre is marginal especially with him, sure 4b/f much better in theory but it commonly ends in tears against unknown followed by a bluff shove by guys like him. As obvious you can't beat him with abc but tightening up ranges could help a bit.

      Hey Dracsharp,

      78o is not the type of hand you want to be defending vs a 3bet with.

      If villain is 3betting wide flat with hands like AJ+, A9s+, 99+, KJs+, KQo. Eventually you can begin to expand to some of the higher suited connectors also.

      Your general strategy postflop will be this ----> Float a bunch of flops, then bet the turn when checked to.

      Given that you turn a pair betting is less important - but you could still consider betting for protection against any overcards/gutshots especially since your pair is very weak.

      As played I would fold the river on this 4-to-straight board.
