      Why are you calling 78s facing his 3bet? I know we are deep but that's not deep enough to start calling so wide unless you have some reads for example he often checks and gives up flop.

      Flop you have odds to call his min raise to hit because he is almost always going in when you do complete oesd

      Calling PF because of deep and little raise + I'm IP.
      I thought it could be already good reason without additional reads, is it really that wide against his 3Bet of 17?
      Maybe because due to him being so loose I don't have many implied odds?

      On the flop I did see the odds there, but wouldn't it be investing too much just with a draw?

      Preflop Call seems good to me. I don't see the point in raising the flop though, and as played you should flat the 3bet too, like i would with my sets if I did raise the flop.

      Why would you flat the 3Bet with set?
      Isn't it a bit too risky to see the turn card?
      There are some scary hands both for us and for him (might scare him off to pay us).

      yeah I didn't realize it was a 3 straight board. Then again I think we can be very certain that the 3better hardly has any 3X/4X in his range, so I am not going to be afraid of calling down even if those cards fall on the Turn.
