      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BB): 215.68 BB
      CO: 104.74 BB (VPIP: 27.55, PFR: 22.27, 3Bet Preflop: 7.89, Hands: 720)
      BTN: 112.18 BB (VPIP: 22.65, PFR: 19.39, 3Bet Preflop: 6.92, Hands: 1,932)
      SB: 100 BB (VPIP: 32.14, PFR: 12.70, 3Bet Preflop: 5.56, Hands: 261)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:spade: K:heart:

      fold, fold, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 9 BB, SB calls 6 BB

      Flop: (18 BB, 2 players) 7:club: 7:diamond: 9:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 10 BB, SB raises to 25 BB, Hero calls 15 BB

      Turn: (68 BB, 2 players) T:spade:
      SB bets 66 BB, Hero calls 66 BB

      River: (200 BB, 2 players) 5:spade:

      Hero shows K:spade: K:heart: (Two Pair, Kings and Sevens) (Pre 81%, Flop 87%, Turn 77%)
      SB shows 8:heart: 8:club: (Two Pair, Eights and Sevens) (Pre 19%, Flop 13%, Turn 23%)
      Hero wins 196 BB

      He attempts to steal sb 14% only on small sample.
      Fold to 3bet 60%. No info on postflop.

      when he raises me on this board I see it as very weak most of the time and sometimes slowplayed JJ+. So is it ok to call and include bluffs in his range, since bluff cant call my 3bet on flop?

      Flop: Well obviously we are never folding. So it's between reraising Flop and calling. With a hand like JJ/TT I would be more inclined to make a small 3bet cos these hands are strong enough to stack off, but a little too weak to slowplay. With QQ+, I think there are fewer bad cards which could fall on the Turn so I prefer just flatting and slowplaying.
