      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:club: , 7:club:
      UTG2 calls $0,02, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,02, BU folds, SB calls $0,01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0,08) T:club: , 6:heart: , 3:club: (4 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0,04, UTG2 calls $0,04, Hero calls $0,04, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0,20) 5:heart: (3 players)
      BB bets $0,09, UTG2 calls $0,09, Hero raises to $0,27, BB folds, UTG2 raises to $1,97 (All-In), Hero calls $1,70 (All-In).

      River: ($4,23) 4:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4,23

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG2 shows (6s 6c)
      Hero shows a straight, seven high (Ac 7c)

      Hero wins with a straight, seven high (Ac 7c)

      On the flop I have 4:1 odds + a backdoor straight draw. Pot odds are 4:1 so I call. On the turn I get an extra gutshot draw, so I consider my hand a monster draw, I 3-bet and call the 4-bet.

      Is this play right? Thank you!

      Hello Elertar,

      Preflop: A good hand actually to isolate the UTG limper even. :)

      As played
      Flop: Taking the passive line is totally fine.
      Turn: Although I don't like the raise that much here. You are just never-ever gonna do good if they come over the top as the guy even here did. Rather just take the odds and be happy if you hit. As played if the opponent ships like that you should rather fold your hand while you only have a draw. In long run you will rather loose money. With such Calls.

      Best regards.
