      Opponent is 32/9

      Could I even consider folding the flop here? What if he raised 3x?

      I was OK with stacking off, turn card couldn't have helped him. Is it profitable to stack off in this situation?

      The hand resulted in a strange line. Too fancy I guess. Should I have shoved on flop? Bet the turn myself?

      Hi.

      Villain reps J7s/JX/75s/77/55 when he raises the Flop. Maybe he could have some draws as well. I think it's best to call the Flop raise and decide what to do on the Turn.

      The turn definitely improved your range vs his range. It reduces the likelihood of him having two pairs or sets so I think your turn check/raise all-in is good.

      If villain had raised the Flop to 3X, I think you need to consider whether he is raising worse JX hands like that or not. If you think the answer is yes, then you can definitely 3-bet here and play for stacks with TPTK.
