      Nh for me. If you were IP you could consider calling maybe but OOP you have to try to get it in. A 6 with a pair or two pair will call you most of the times.

      I'd raise it pre-flop to steal.

      You only are up against UTG, if he folds the rest will most probably too.


      As played:
      Call his raise, c/r turn.

      I don't see him playing like that on a draw. He wants to isolate you, if he was drawing he would call hoping others would also call.

      Hello,
      77 is a good enough hand to raise it from any position.
      Postflop is fine.You have to protect against 6x, and as said, pair+6 and two pair are calling anyway.
      Best regards,

      I would raise it like 80% of the time here preflop, but I've been very active and aggressive on that table for the last several hands so I decided to just complete.

      By calling flop and then check/raising turn I'm giving the villain opportunity to see a turn card and a river card for free and I didn't like it on that flop so I decided to 3bet.
