      Final Pot: $40.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of sevens (Kd Qd)
      MP2 shows two pairs, tens and sevens (Ts Td)

      MP2 wins with two pairs, tens and sevens (Ts Td)

      perhaps it is a wrong move on such a passive guy and i should just bet out
      but against an opponent who likes to bet in position when he senses weakness, is it good to play c/r with such draws? (so that either i get a free card or i make him fold his bluff)

      I would either 3-bet or fold preflop. I don't like to play a hand like this OOP without being the preflop aggressor. As played I'm probably donking the flop and take it from there. Unless he's hit a set we're in pretty good shape.

      Hello,
      Against such guy raising from UTG, I'd 3bet as smooth calling poses domination problems. Still, its suited and a call is ok, but you have to be careful with one pair type of hands.
      I prefer lead/3bet on such flop.
      Your turnbet is too small, and the card isnt really a good one after being called, so I prefer checking and playing odds wise.

      Best regards,
