      Known players:

      0,03/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T:spade: , 5:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,18, SB calls $0,15, BB folds.
      of course this is questionable but i had just been stealing with almost any two as these guys didn't ever seem to adapt (despite SB's 29 VP$IP he was not ever calling raises, just open limping)
      if they started to call, i'd just give up postflop and tighten up stealing range

      Flop: ($0,41) T:heart: , T:diamond: , 7:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.
      standard cbet as i hit and fd on board?
      i wanted to rep air, as that's my most common holding and i was raising like 100% of buttons

      Turn: ($0,41) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $0,41, Hero calls $0,41.
      this is pretty interesting.
      of course i should most likely call this bet, but can i call another barrel on the river if he fires strong again? i'd rather be inclined to fold due to my non-existant kicker.

      River: ($1,23) T:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $1,23, Hero raises to $5,80 (All-In)
      complicated decisions are over, i have nutzzzzz
      so my thoughts went, if he has any FH that he likes (seems to be the case) i should be able to stack him anyway, so just put him all-in and see what happens

      , SB calls $3,93 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $11,55

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows four-of-a-kind, tens (T 5)
      SB shows (7 7) (incidentally imo this call was pretty bad, since his set now has no more value than a single 7)

      Hero wins with four-of-a-kind, tens (T 5)

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Yep, bet it right on flop, you have protect your hand. As played nothing much to add.

      But I'd evaluate the actions preflop, do you think it's a great idea to steal vs loose opponents with T5o? :>

      Best regards.
