Home Game (Six Handed)

Preflop: Hero is 2 with 7,7.
1 fold,hero raise to 1.50, sb fold, BB raise to 2.50, Hero raise to 7.50, BB raise all in (10.75), Hero Calls (10.50). BB shows Ad,Qd

Flop: 10d, 4, 3d (2 players)

Turn: 8 (2 players)

River: A (2 players)

In the end the BB hit his ace on the river and knocked me out.
Do you think i played this right preflop? The blinds were going to go up in 10 minutes and BB is a very agressive player.

I'd just call the reraise and see a flop. Another option is to simply push after the reraise instead of reraising to 7.50. Raising to 7.50 doesn't really accomplish much.

I don't know why you would push to $7.50 instead of the full $10.50, since you're pretty much committed. I'm guessing you're not looking for a call given the $5 raise, so you may as well put him to the test.

I also don't know why you reraised, given that you would have had ~15 blinds + position if you had just called. Unless you're an atrocious post-flop player, there's no reason to make this a race given that you'll still have 10x+ blinds in the next level.

My raise to 7.50 was somewhat a bet to see where he was in the hand. He is a very agressive player and also the blinds were increasing. to .50-1.00

"Seeing where he is at" by putting in most of your chips is crazy.

Stack-sizes and payout would be a godsend.
