      Hi, sometimes I get good hands in a row so because I'm raising them I get a bad image. Then let's say on the next hand I get some broadway I'd raise with on LP, like KT or a pocket pair like 77. Should I raise them or just fold because of my image?

      As long as they don't start to play back again, which would be untypical on lower limts, just play as you usually play. A bad image is good btw, since they call you down lighter.

      Yea that's what I think too, but I see people referring to a good image as a TAG, I actually think it's bad because we don't get payed many times (not on NL10 though :P )

      I said it was a bad image because it doesn't give me much fold equity, so should I cbet when I got this image? And I know hands that aren't QQ+ need some fold equity preflop to be EV+, so with this image I won't get much preflop neither postflop.

      You also have a nice equity with AK and other hands preflop. If they call every cbet, cbet less when you didn't hit. ;)

      77 is a monster from late position!
      maybe steal tighter if you think you don't have enough fold equity and they may 3bet you
