      Preflop: do you think calling the 3bet here is justified?

      On the flop i decided to make a move, cause probably he has to fold every non Ace hand to a raise. I don't know if i had enough fold equity here.
      ( call: 88,AA,AK / fold:99-KK fe:51%
      88,AA,AK,AQ/77,99-KK fe:41%
      AA,AK/JJ,QQ,KK fe:45%
      i need 47% )

      On the turn the miraculous 7 hits, and i bet to get allin against AK like hands, but he raises me allin. I thought he probably has 88 or AA, but i don't think i can fold here. I only need about 15% equity and he can still have AK sometimes.

      Hello kesgab

      Calling pre flop IP is fine 200BB deep.

      Bluffing on this board is ok but you must understand that it is a high variance playas he will often have an ace he can't let go of.

      Obviously the 7 is your dream card and there's no chance of folding now, I'd just shove as betting $14 looks far too strong.
