      vs reg. 20/16/4.3 3bet 5.5

      I put him on a tight range and called for implied odds thinking my hand plays ok oop. my table image is kind of maniac.

      CO: $11.13 (111.3 bb)
      BTN: $5.39 (53.9 bb)
      Hero (SB): $22.17 (221.7 bb)
      BB: $15.07 (150.7 bb)
      MP: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7 T
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.80) 6 T 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.20, BB raises to $3.10, Hero calls $1.90

      Turn: ($8.00) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks

      River: ($8.00) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.90, BB calls $4.90

      Preflop: Your hand sucks pretty hard. Just fold. He is such a nit, and T7s has poor playability. I am even folding JTs here, let alone T7s.

      1) You are OOP
      2) You lack the initiative
      3) You are up against a tight range
      4) You overestimate your implied odds
      5) Your hand's playability sucks. This is not as though you can just setmine vs a tight range with a pocket pair, and hit 11% of the time. You are rarely going to connect with the board and when you do so, you probably flop some gutshot or flush draw and you are still an underdog vs his range.

      Flop: Don't lead here. I think this is a very easy check/raise on the Flop. When you get raised you should happily 3bet to 6$ and shove the turn. I am not putting him on too many flush draws.
