      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $26.93
      CO:
      $31.70
      BU (Hero):
      $26.24
      SB:
      $17.24
      BB:
      $29.83
      MP2:
      $41.06


      Preflop: Hero is BU with T, T.
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.75, CO folds, Hero calls $0.75, SB calls $0.65, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.5) A, 5, 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $1.60, SB calls $1.60, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($5.7) 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.50, SB calls $3.50.

      River: ($12.7) 6 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $12.7.

      SB stats: 68/14 in 22 hands
      OR: 23/23 in 22 hands

      Since the OR didn't bet on a drawy flop like this, he certainly hasn't an A. I betted because the SB fish would call with FD, SD, gutshots, maybe 7x, and of course Ax. I was planning on betting the turn again on a blank to protect and get a free showdown.

      The turn was an 8, completed 46 SD but there are other draws as well.

      My question is, am I making this pot too big? Fishes call with a lot of Ax, so he'll often have Ax there. I don't know if the draws in his range pay off what I'll lose against Ax.

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, what's better?
      a) We bet the flop get a free card and maybe even a free showdown on turn/river.
      b) We see a bet on turn and which might be even from FD/SD.

      I'd still go for plan (a) and bet while they both show no interest in the pot. Although I'd Check it behind on turn.

      Best regards.
