      Hi,
      This hand seemed kind of interesting from my opponents point of view. I think that he seriously overplayed his cards especialy on the turn when I re-raised him. But he had Platinum level at pokerstars and thus left me thinking that maybe that was some kind of advanced play wich I do not fully understand because I could not imagine my self playing like that with AdTd.


      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      MP3:
      $47.40
      Hero:
      $27.70

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7:diamond: , 7:heart:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.85, Hero raises to $2.75, 3 folds, MP3 calls $1.90.

      Flop: ($5.85) Q:diamond: , 8:club: , J:club: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $4.25, MP3 calls $4.25.

      Turn: ($14.35) 7:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $5.00, Hero raises to $15.00, MP3 raises to $40.40 (All-In), Hero calls $5.70 (All-In), MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($55.75) J:diamond: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $55.75

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a full-house, sevens full of jacks (7d 7h)
      MP3 shows a pair of jacks (Td Ad)

      Hero wins with a full-house, sevens full of jacks (7d 7h)

      I think 3-bet is fine pf
      yeah he´s play on the turn was strange, but I guess he felt that he was pot committed after he lead out on the turn

      I doubt a little in 3 beting 77 on CO.

      Also cbetting so much on flop which is far away from perfect to us.

      AJ, AQ, JQ, 9T....all that hands easily beat us.



      So in my case on CO i am folding 77 and i am not cbetting often here with so ugly board.



      Are my thoughts so wrong??

      well if you´re folding 77 pf then you´re really play too nitty
      Sure there are a lot of hands that beat you, but villain can´t really see our hand and often if he has smt like AT he would c/f and he may c/c with worse draws

      Ok i bet those hand PF but not without reads. I 3bet those hands only if i see that villians fold enaugh percentage on 3bets. Its difficult to play those hands for value.


      Maybe this is kind of advance play but it would be nice to see in long term what are results with those weak pairs if we often 3 bet on CO or even maybe on MP.
