I think I need to tighten up...

Alright, so just to give you the background of this table. I've been aggressively raising early because I was actually catching cards. Then, there was one hand where I lost a lot of money when I had JJ and this other guy had KK. But all night, I was raising from either the cutoff or the button when everyone folded to me, pretty much with anything. This guy, 44 AXE 44, earlier reraised me to $21 and I folded. So, this hand came around and this is what I ended up doing... Oh, my screenname is RecessRampage.

Did I think it was possible that he had a high pair? Sure. But if he did, I had outs. This had more to do with the fact that I knew he was raising because he knew that I would raise from the button with a pretty weak hand (my hand selection would be a lot wider). I knew he knew so I played back like I actually had a hand this time. And again, if not, I did have a pair of 7s.... Risky, and not worth it? Probably...

Good hand. But it’s easier to understand visually:

The hand can be embedded right in your posts.
