This hand was this opponent's and my 7th hand together.

His 1st hand at the table, which he folded preflop in the BB, was the 2nd time I got to showdown with the other player, where I tried to steal the blinds from the bttn 3 handed with 76o,and I then checked it to showdown vs the sb on 8c3d5cKd5.

His 2nd hand at the table he raised 3x from the sb into my BB. I folded 73o.

His 3rd hand at the table was where I stacked the other opponent w/ T9o 3x'ing sb into his KJo BB on AcJh8cQc2s for 54.5bb.

His 4th hand, folding the BB pre, he saw me raise/fold bttn 3x vs the sb's 3bet to 9x.

His 5th hand at the table he raised 3x sb into my BB and I folded.

His 6th hand at the table he saw me 4bet JJ all-in preflop in sb vs the other opponent's 99 in BB and lose to a flopped set of 9's.

Are you raising almost any hand on the bttn 3 handed right after losing a big pot where you got the money in preflop as a 4-1 favorite? Am I spewing w 53s in this situation?

Given that I raised 53s, do you think that I played this hand ok?

Preflop is kind of borderline since the villain seems to be fairly loose, aggro and sits on a short stack. Not the best conditions for opening a hand like 53s. I would open up more highcard hands and cut off the low cards or garbage.

Postflop I like how you played the hand and I would have played it the same way.
