      Known players:

      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 7:diamond: , 7:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 2 folds, CO calls $0.16, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($0.38) 9:diamond: , 7:heart: , 4:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.27, CO raises to $0.54, Hero calls $0.27.

      Turn: ($1.46) A:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.69, Hero raises to $3.82 (All-In), CO folds.

      Final Pot: $5.97

      Flop: I didn't want to reraise here, I had seen this opponent do a lot of spewy plays so felt I would be better off calling and allowing him to bluff again on the turn. Since flop was so dry I felt this was an ok spot to slowplay my set.

      Turn: I think betting out here would be better and hope that he shoves as a bluff or has maybe hit the A.

      Other than that, anything I should have done differently? And is it ok to slowplay in this situation on flop?

      Hi Jeffers16!

      This is really nice example how being OOP sucks and how difficult is to extract money.

      My Default line on turn would be call his bet and either, check-shove river, or bet river 1/3-1/2 POT.

      That would depends on what reads I do have on villain. Your stats indicates he might be very aggressive, but that A might have scared him a lot (based on his weak turn bet).

      Here I am more inclined to donk river weak by my self.
      If I shove turn as you did all hands worse that Ax will fold.
