      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 8.
      UTG1 raises to $0.20, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.20, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.15, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) 5, 7, J (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG1 bets $0.70, MP3 calls $0.70, Hero raises to $3.70(All-In), UTG1 folds, MP3 calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($8.8) K (2 players)

      River: ($8.8) 3 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $8.8.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of sevens(7 8).
      MP3 shows a pair of tens(T T).

      MP3 wins with a pair of tens(T T).

      The UTG raiser is 58/24 over 119 hands but only 50%fold 2 3bet and 38% fold to cbet.
      Caller is 16/12 over 606 hands and 6% call open.
      BB behind me is 17/4 with 0% 3bet over 23 hands.

      I therefore thought that a squeeze is bad because we will very seldom get utg of the hand and the caller may have a monster.

      I also thought the situation is to good to fold plus it seems BB will call very wide.

      I like the flop we can get it in with a lot of equity with many hands.

      When utg bets and the caller flats I know neither of them has a set and that two pair is very unlikely. Therefore I am facing weak made hands or flushdraws. Therefore I have a lot of fold equity and I am not in bad shape against their calling range.

      I shove with the only fear that both acll me and show me 1 bigger flush draw and the other Jx.

      All in all I think it was played well.
