      Flop bet felt weak and I felt it was worth a call given I beat most hands apart from Ax.

      Didn't see any value in betting my hand on later streets, consider folding to further aggression.

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)

      Flop: ($0.39) A:club: , 4:heart: , 3:diamond: (4 players)
      UTG1 checks, UTG2 bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16, BU calls $0.16, UTG1 folds.

      River: ($0.87) J:diamond: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks, BU checks.

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (Kd Qd)
      Hero shows a pair of sevens (7s 7d)
      BU shows (6d 5d)

      Hero wins with a pair of sevens (7s 7d)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Not a huge fan of calling the flop anyways. Even if it's weak he may still have better PPs than you. Plus we have opponents behind us. I wouldn't overplay my PP and do those hero-calls but rather just fold if I didn't hit.

      Of course his CBet doesn't show much strength but keep in mind we have still people behind us. :)

      And of course there is no point in betting any later streets and just turning your hand into bluff. That's as well why I don't like the Call that much on flop while a lot of overcards are possible to come and we wont be able to Call any more streets.

      Best regards.
