      Hero shows 7:club: 7:spade: (Three of a Kind, Sevens) (Pre 54%, Flop 98%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 197 BB


      Is it ok to 3b from blinds vs SB, BU and CO with 22-77 and to call 88,99? Or even 3bet each PP?
      Is it ok to check flop, since he might start bluffing, and if checks I can still bet and overbet river which looks bluffy maybe. And also I balance my check flop line.

      Hey,

      Preflop, I would 3bet about 99% of hands I continue with from the SB as a default. Calling would be an excepption vs standard BUs.

      Postflop, I think Qxx is too good to not cbet for value imo. You don't get much credit and most his hands that call a 3bet IP with have some Qx on that flop. As played, what range do you give him to check back flop that could call your river overbet?

      AQ sometimes checks back to induce me on turn, since my check looks like raise or give up. Kx might also check behind that calls river. Also TT, JJ might do that. People often see my overbet as bluff because K on river is scare card and might bluff catch even with PP. As I can see from my statistics, people more often call my overbet than they fold to it. So I always overbet nuts, and to balance it I overbet also when there are scare cards to show them that sometiems I dont have it.

      OK, they like to call more than fold vs overbets but what Kx does he have in his range here and what middle pairs call? Your opponent's range will usually be quite weak so unlikely to call an overbet unless he specifically thinks an overbet is weak. You are now talking about someone's specific perception of you, which I cannot comment on here, since it's impossible to give a good answer, it would only be a mere guess. :)
