Villan looked like tightest player at least pre draw.
But the question is how to play this spot against various villains and stakes.
Was my break bad? (not looking at the results)
How about villain raise? (I better like freeze with 876xx in his spot, or keep drawing to 76, because i stood pat after drawing one and after first draw) I was sure he wasn't making a play to make me brake, not at these stakes, I think he was making something like free showdown raise.
Should i be 3 betting turn and standing pat if called and breaking if 4bet? Maybe standing pat always.
Or Freezing out of position? (but i like 3betting or breaking more in theory freezing looks very weak play)
Im not sure about my 87 hand strength against tighter button opener in this spot. Maybe I should keep drawing after first keeping my 7 draw out of position and pitching the 8?
How the situation should be played in higher stakes games against various opponents?
Thank you for answers
