      My first hand evaluation! just moved up to 5NL and im finding it a bit tricky! i think i played this hand ok but maybe my raises were a bit weak, i played it weak i think coz i was on a 3BI downswing and really wanted to come back but ended up getting bit in the ass!!

      let me know what you think, (it says 6 handed but it was FR?)


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 7.
      3 folds, BU raises to $0.20, SB folds, Hero calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) 7, J, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.25, Hero raises to $0.70, BU calls $0.45.

      Turn: ($1.82) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, BU calls $1.00.

      River: ($3.82) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.00, BU raises to $3.10, Hero calls $1.10.

      Final Pot: $10.02.

      Results follow, (HIGHLIGHT):

      BU shows a straight, ace high(Qh Jd).
      Hero shows three of a kind, sevens(7s 7d).

      BU wins with a straight, ace high(Qh Jd).

      Hello 4adeadpoet,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Flop: You can even Check/Raise it bigger like $1 at least.
      Turn: As well I guess I would do a bit bigger CBet like $1,30.
      River: And not much we get value actually from, he could easily have the Qx and therefore I might even prefer just Checking and taking a look at his bet size, against bigger one I might even prefer to fold. And of course be happy if he just Checks behind. There ain't just many hands which we are getting value from while he will have hard time Calling with a lot worse.

      Best regards.
