      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $4.63
      BTN: $0.88
      SB: $4.96 - 25/20/3 (140 hands).
      BB: $3.94
      UTG: $8.73
      Hero (UTG+1): $4.00
      MP: $1.30
      MP+1: $4.09

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 7:club: 7:diamond:

      fold, Hero calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.24, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.52, 2 players) 9:heart: 8:diamond: T:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.52, 2 players) 2:diamond:
      SB bets $0.37, Hero raises to $1.08, fold

      I was pretty sure he tried to steal the pot and decided to fire back at him while having a made hand with some fairly weak draws. P.S. His cbet % for flop was low. Was it the right move or should I have just given up?

      Hello faronel,

      Why don't you just take a stab right on flop and bet it? Protect from draws/overcards etc type of hands.

      But as played not a huge fan of the raise. What do you try to achieve with the hand? With the raise you turned your hand into bluff, although while you could easily just take down the pot on flop with the bet and wouldn't even have to invest more money. And of course his donk doesn't make sense. If he had a hand then he would very likely bet the flop. So practically on turn it's up to the FD+overcard type of hand. Even with FD they are very often Cbetting it.

      Best regards.
