      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $17.26 (172.6 bb)
      BB: $15.33 (153.3 bb) (34/29) 25% 3bet 82 hands
      UTG: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $11.53 (115.3 bb)
      CO: $10.24 (102.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 7 8
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.95, Hero calls $0.65

      I decide to call as villain 3 bets quite wide. This is the same villain from the previous hand.

      Flop: ($1.95) 6 8 A (2 players)
      BB bets $1.07, Hero calls $1.07

      Is floating okay here with Mp against an agro villain.

      Turn: ($4.09) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $2.34, Hero raises to $9.51 and is all-in, BB calls $7.17

      Stacking off here seemed optimal to me. What is your opinion

      River: ($23.11) 9 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      $23.11 pot ($1.15 rake)
      Final Board: 6 8 A 7 9
      BB showed A 2 and lost (-$11.53 net)
      Hero showed 7 8 and won $21.96 ($10.43 net)

      I'm no pro, but I would have just folded his flop bet. I don't see villian betting without Ax. We just happened to get lucky and hit the 7 which isn't an actual out. SD and FD got there. What is your turn plan if a blank hits the turn and he bets?

      Preflop: The sample isn't too huge but if villain was really so active preflop, then I think it's mandatory to defend this so that he cannot get away with abusing you preflop.

      Flop: You cannot fold here when villain's range is >10% here. He does not necessarily hit the Ace all the time, he's going to have his KQ/T9s type of hands which will miss this Flop and we have 2nd pair

      Turn: If we believe that villain is never folding AX to a raise, then the best Turn play is to push here before the river brings a 4th or straight card. I think that's probably the case here
