      I like my play for most of this hand...but I think I really messed up on the river? I should have called, since I could easily have been beaten.

      The raise on the river isolates me against straights, which he only needed a 2 or 7 for (although possibly he wouldn't have played either card there, not really in his range).

      villians 32/18/5.0

      what do you think?

      River: ($0.38) 4 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.76, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.63.

      Not sure what I think about this. Depends what his WTSD is and if he can call you with worse. If he's a station he might call with something like 88/99/TT and some 2-pair hands? obviously also included is 77. However, he might be trying to checkraise the turn with bigger sets.

      Will be interesting what veriz says :-)

      P.S. after making tea i'm pretty sure I jsut flat the river

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Do you expect him to Call there worse like smaller pair? Or 2pairs? If so then raising should be considerable but what's your line if you get 3bet? :D I don't think that we can likely Call it profitable there when he decides to 3bet against our raise. Therefore the raising there is as well kinda thin but with reads doable. But as you see even fish will realize that a 7x or 2x makes a straight. :D

      Best regards.
