      Hey!

      Bet the flop! We have the best hand here a ton! We must get value and protection as we have a weak vulnerable pair! Just pot it on the flop. We get called by any worse 7, any 8x, any 4x and stuff like 5x, 6x.

      The turn cards is obviously beautiful =D

      Against MP2's 3bet, I'd just stick the money in, because he's a shortie. I believe he'll have us beat with a FH or a str8 some of the time, but he's also playing any 7 like that and even if he has a str8 we still have decent equity.


      Cheers!
