      Known players:    
      SB:
      $10,69
      Hero:
      $10,55

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 7:diamond: , 7:heart:
      Hero raises to $0,40, 3 folds, SB raises to $1,10, BB folds, Hero calls $0,70.

      Flop: ($2,30) 5:spade: , 6:heart: , J:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $2,00, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $4,30

      Again - can I call such a 3bet? If yes, can I only play for set value with my 77 here? Or should I try to float him from time to time or try to make a move?

      Fold pre, set mining = call 20, you don't get that here

      My reasoning here was like that:

      Call20 rule is made on an assumption, that I'll stack my opponent approximately once in three hands when I hit my set. In a 3bet pot I think I can stack my opponent more often, cause he's more likely to have a hand like JJ+ that makes an overpair and goes broke with it more likely and I'm able to stack him easier if I hit.

      Then again, I don't think it's still enough to call just for a set value here. That's why I asked if I should try to make a move somtimes when the conditions are good to get the pot without hitting a set.

      Or should I just fold pre and don't try anything fancy?

      Fold pre :D Floating 3bet pots is expensive, and you will find that many opponents won't be able to lay down a big overpair in a 3bet pot on the turn, because there's so much money in the pot already.

      Easy fold preflop because you don't get enough set value.
