      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      Hero (SB): $54.75 (109.5 bb)
      BB: $54.95 (109.9 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $52.34 (104.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7 7
      2 folds, BTN raises to $1.25, Hero calls $1, BB folds

      Flop: ($3) 7 A Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.20, Hero raises to $7.50, BTN calls $5.30

      Turn: ($18) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $11.50, BTN calls $11.50

      River: ($41) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $32.09 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BTN played 26/21 after 60 hands.

      Preflop? BB hasnt squeezed a lot so far, but do you flat with this middle pairs 77-99(/TT) vs BTN steal? 3betting would be a bluff, we didnt have history/dynamics giving me enough reason to play 3bet/jam, and 3bet/fold would be kind of waste. Plus even if he flats my 3bet, it would be difficult for me to play oop on most boards in a bloated pot.

      Flop seems great for a chRaise, cause I dont represent much, I'd probably 3bet AA/QQ/AQ preflop, so my valuerange is quite narrow, mainly A7s/77...

      Turn? Still valuebet against A:hX/AX?

      River is a clear ch/fold I guess, he can easily have the nuts with A.

      Preflop: Don't mind just 3betting, purely to avoid getting BB involved in the hand. You can 3bet/fold this if there isn't the right dynamic for shoving it.
      If BB is really tight or just bad, then flatting here can be fine.

      River: We are close to the bottom of our range on the River. We also have flushes here. Assuming BTN is solid here, I think he would usually fold off-suit AX hands on the Turn when the flush gets there. So he has a lot of AX with one heart, some flushes.

      We can choose to c/c with some hearts if you think he can turn hands into bluffs.
