      Hey,

      Could you please review the hands below?


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB:
      $4.62
      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG1:
      $2.30
      UTG2:
      $6.27
      MP1:
      $2.34
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $2.22
      CO:
      $1.70
      BU:
      $1.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, T.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 calls $0.02, 3 folds, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 7, Q, Q (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.07, UTG2 folds, MP1 folds, BU folds, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.1.

      Was this a good bet considering I have a weak two pair and someone could have the Q? Or should I have maybe checked this one?

      Thanks,
      AKM

      Hey AKM247,

      I see you play with a full stack in this hand. If you would like a BSS opinion it would be better to post on the BSS forum.

      According to the articles, you should just c/f the hand, because in freeplays you should only play monsters and monster draws postflop. In this hand you only have a second pair with T kicker, because one pair is already on the board, so you can't count your hand as a real 2-pair. Actually your hand is pretty weak and you would find yourself in lots of trouble if someone called your flop bet and that's why I would just check/fold this in multiway pot.

      Regards,
