      BTN: $95.97 (191.9 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $77.18 (154.4 bb)
      UTG: $32.41 (64.8 bb)
      Hero (MP): $66.63 (133.3 bb)
      CO: $41.33 (82.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 3 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 2 7 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($11.25) J (2 players)
      BB bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50

      River: ($18.25) 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50

      With him being quite aggro and small sizing I though in the hand that he could be having pure air a good amount of the time so I decided to just call down.

      Now I question this as being because the best line as I think it might be more value in 3betting flop/trying to get all the money in by the river as:
      - he is unlikely to fold any draw
      - he might x/r worse for value 7x 88-TT
      - he is unlikely imo to x/r small a set

      there are a few considerations here
      -raise size/bet size: he is betting really small
      -player type: he is loose and semi-aggro - his c/r range contains a lot of weak and thin value type of hands
      -stack depth: less thrilled to stack off 130bb with only an overpair

      i think it's fine to call the flop but you should raise the turn and bet large on the river. Won't be surprised to see some draws/7X/88-TT
