      PokerStars - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $97.94
      SB: $50.46 (VPIP: 23.41, PFR: 21.03, 3Bet Preflop: 8.33, Hands: 259)
      BB: $58.16 (VPIP: 25.71, PFR: 17.14, 3Bet Preflop: 10.00, Hands: 36)
      UTG: $54.72 (VPIP: 18.57, PFR: 14.05, 3Bet Preflop: 5.26, Hands: 428)
      MP: $60.98 (VPIP: 20.62, PFR: 19.21, 3Bet Preflop: 8.45, Hands: 359)
      CO: $41.05 (VPIP: 23.53, PFR: 23.53, 3Bet Preflop: 20.00, Hands: 18)

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 7:spade: 8:spade:

      fold, MP raises to $1.50, fold, Hero calls $1.50, fold, fold

      Flop: ($3.75, 2 players) T:diamond: 3:spade: J:spade:
      MP bets $3.50, Hero raises to $10.00, MP raises to $22.50, Hero ??

      Vilains oR 20% from MP cbets 83% Flop so I think its good to raise OTF, he folded 2/2 to flop raises before, vs his 3bet/call range I have decant EQ:

      Board: T:diamond: J:spade: 3:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    36.85%  36.85%   0.00% { 8s7s }
      MP3    63.15%  63.15%   0.00% { TT+, 33, AsKs, AsQs, KsQs, Ts9s }

      And he should have 3bet fold range too, so I think this hand is strong to raise/push, becouse it feels like burning money when we raise fold such strong hand OTF. What do you think?

      Hey dooleslovs,

      Usually this hand would go into my flatting range on flop. I prefer to raise with hands like gut-shots with a back-door-draw where it's a clear fold vs 3bet, or hands like Q:sK where you don't even need to think about what to do vs a 3bet.

      Mostly I would assume you have no fold equity in the flop and villain is committed. If we imagine villain is shoving and calculate our odds - we need about 40% equity to stack off. So you will need some fold equity to make a shove profitable. It could be doable but will be pretty break even unless villain is folding quite a lot. A hand like QKs vs the same range (blocks monster-draws) has closer to 50% equity and doesn't matter if we have fold-equity or not, it'd just be an added bonus.
