      hello ladies and gentleman
      today we will concentrate on questions about how to play midpairs
      if i say midpairs i mean the pairs from 77-TT

      they are allways a little troublesome because they are made hands on their own, but very vulnerable to overcards

      so what is our plan with those hands if we face a raise?
      whats the plan on the flop, and how to proceed on later streets
      that will be the lesson for today and as usual you should feel free to post your own hands and questions in this topic so we can talk about those in the coaching.

      hf and gl
