Villain bad overaggro regulars, very aggresive especially vs me, very high frequency of stabing pots but not capable of huge bluffs

preflop: std open, 4bet cuz of his huge 3bet vs me, also we're deep stacked so I've space to make moves postflop and I dont like playing vs him without initiative

Flop: pretty bad for my hand but his range also doesnt hit strong I see his range for smth like this : TT-22,AQs-ATs,KTs+,Q9s+,J8s+,T8s+,98s,87s , I decided not to bet because I cant get much fold equity by beting also I expect him to bet huge part of his range on the later streets

Turn: As expected he's betting, Give up is an option but is it max EV? I figured out that he has a lot of draws and weak hands here also turn is good card cuz he cant comfortably go in with any draw cuz board paired so I decided to raise because I think he bets here minimum 71 combos which looks like this : 99, 66-22, 8d8h, 8d8s, 8h8s, 7d7h, 7d7c, 7h7c, AQs, KsQs, KcQc, AsJs, AcJc, KsJs, KcJc, QsJs, QcJc, AsTs, AcTc, KsTs, KcTc, QsTs, QcTc, JsTs, JcTc, Qs9s, Qc9c, Js9s, Jc9c, Ts9s, Tc9c, Js8s, Ts8s, 9s8s but vs raise he can continute only with 9d9h, 9d9c, 9h9c, 3d3h, AdQd, AhQh, AsQs, KdQd, KhQh, KsQs, QdJd, QhJh, QsJs, QdTd, QhTh, QsTs, Qd9d, Qh9h what is 18 combos

so now if he bets 3,20 to 4,50 total pot size 7,70 if I make a raise 9,20 I invest 9,20 to stab 16,9 so I need 54% Feq here to make this raise profitable without any equity in the pot

if my assumptions are right he folds 53 combos of 71 so feq is 74%

I'd like to hear your opinions about my thinking process Smile

Not a fan of this hand. You can find much better hands than 87o to fight back with there. It has no blockers and it doesn't flop well. The second point is important because your 4bet is way too small and will get called almost always. I think you can go either way on the flop, vs normal 4bet call ranges at 100bb's I'd check back that flop with 100% of my range, but at 200bb's, after making that tiny 4bet, I think you can make an argument for taking a stab there. On the turn you rep absolutely nothing with a raise.

Playing hands on the back of stuff like this is going to make things far too complicated. The fact you are even thinking of stuff like this is good, but so is the realization of what you need to do to beat these stakes, which it doesn't look like you have. As mentioned, if you just play ABC, play the good hands, always betting for value with occasional high probability bluffs, you are going to absolutely CRUSH this stake. I have played a lot of stakes from 50nl to 1000nl and would only be starting to take the above into consideration when playing at least 200nl. There is no point making hands so complicated if opponent is 50x levels below your thinking. The trick is to realise what level they are thinking on, and exploit them by being a couple of levels ahead. Not by being 50x levels ahead Smile
