      Hey guys, I´m not sure if i should have raised first 77 preflop and if my play afterwards was ok. He then showed QJ. Thanks for your help.

      Hello redwarf01,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future to fix your leaks and as well help you moving up the limits. Meanwhile good luck on tables!

      About the play:
      Preflop: The check behind is there totally and hope to hit but of course raising is also considerable.
      Postflop: I don't really like the donk here, while we weren't PFR, I'd rather just Check it through and hope to see free showdown or just give it up. No point to bet. Otherwise river is as well Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
