      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $27.50
      BU(Hero):
      $25.00
      SB:
      $48.25
      BB:
      $23.25
      UTG2:
      $19.75
      MP1:
      $26.60
      MP2:
      $6.50
      MP3:
      $25.35

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8, 7.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB raises to $3.25, Hero raises to $7.75, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.35.

      The SB is a nitt, didn't defend his blind even once in that session.
      BB is unknown , I decided to 4bet bluff since he don't have any stats on me and can't call/shove with out AK/QQ+.
      Yea I know lots of variance in this move, but you have to be creative sometimes... :)

      Most players on NL25 don`t use stats so no worries there. Howevere with 78o I donk like the move. 78s would be better because of better playability IP if you bet called , because if you get shoved you obviously fold here , so you need hands with good playability and implied

      bold move, but consider your fold equity it is likely fine
      I´d take passive approach and just fold

      Your hand doesn't matter when 4bet bluffing - the aim is to get them to fold, and on the rare occasions when you get called you're shoving most flops anyway due to the size of the pot unless you have a read that villain likes to call 4bets with AA/KK (in a 4bet pot on the flop you only have a pot-sized bet remaining in your stack).

      It's a pure FE move. I think it's a good spot for a 4bet bluff since he have no idea
      about my 3/4bet ranges, and will fold a major part of his 3bet range.

      agree, although that doesn´t mean that you know about his 3-bet ranges and could easily run into monster :)
