      Full Tilt - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $26.10
      Hero (CO): $26.20
      BTN: $23.67
      SB: $38.05
      BB: $55.99

      SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero has 7:diamond: 6:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.85, fold, SB raises to $2.75, fold, Hero calls $1.90

      Flop: ($5.75, 2 players) 6:spade: 3:heart: 6:club:
      SB bets $2.75, Hero calls $2.75

      Turn: ($11.25, 2 players) 5:spade:
      SB bets $5.75, Hero raises to $20.70 and is all-in, SB calls $14.95

      River: ($52.65, 2 players) A:spade:

      Villain is 19/17 with 18 prflop 3-bet and he was really 3-bet happy from BB.

      Is it ok to call here from time to time against him, or maybe it is mistake to open raise from BU cause he is 3-bet happy from BB?

      I thought I will show him that he can't re steal me easily, also I can steal pot sometimes IP, it is easy fold if I don't hit and if he has really strong hand I can stack him if hit big.

      Playing SC without initiative is hard, because you can't hit so often to call 3bet every single time, but if he's active 3bettor it should be fine to play IP with hand that puts you on rather easy decisions postflop.
      Going broke on such a board seems fine to me.

      if you call suited connectors you really have to make some moves postflop to make them profitable
      Postflop play is fine. i think you get barreled enough times to call flop and shove turn
