      Wasn't sure I could get 3 streets of value on this hand, so decided to check turn. Min bet into me was a bit unexpected.

      On river I went for what I felt was a thin value bet, however looking back at the board, while he may have called me with a weaker ace, there are now also several completed draws so I'm likely beat if I get called?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , Q:heart:
      MP2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB calls $0.06, MP2 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.24) A:heart: , 7:spade: , 4:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.17, BB folds, MP2 calls $0.17.

      Turn: ($0.58) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04.

      River: ($0.66) 3:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.25, MP2 calls $0.25.

      Final Pot: $1.16

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP2 shows three-of-a-kind, sevens (7h 7d)
      Hero shows (As Qh)

      MP2 wins with three-of-a-kind, sevens (7h 7d)

      Preflop raise 5x, cause 1 player limped.
      Continue betting on turn. B/f river or c/c river.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: For having one limper and even being OOP I would even consider doing it $0,12.
      Postflop: Rather Bet/Fold the turn than turn your hand into bluff-catcher. But as played seems to be fine. For the given reason that our idea is to block-bet and avoid him betting very big when we just can't Call. But while he might even hold any worse Ax hands.

      Best regards.
