      1) After only a few hands on villain he seems pretty loose. I'd need a better hand than T7s to open against this villain. Post-flop is fine since you won't often see a better flop. Bet/folding after hitting seems pretty illogical.

      2) It seems reasonable providing you have reasonable FE PF. Once again, no point in playing these hands PF to only fold on the flop after hitting when the money is so shallow.

      Hello Alejandrosh,

      I raise 3bb FI SB instead of 4bb because you basically steal just 1bb..

      TPMK is for me enough to push it here

      Best regards,
      Gerv
