      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, sevens (9s 7s)



      the guy had re-raised my late pos raises twice before, so I limped to call if he raises on SB and play in position... but he completed and we played the hand. I ended up winner but want to know if I played it right, especially on the turn...

      Hello SilverFace,

      Preflop: If you want to play the hand then raise it up, never limp on LP. :) You can easily even take down the pot if you raise it here. If you have a aggressive opponent behind you then rather just fold the hand.

      As played
      Turn: Well, I don't like that much your bet on turn. I mean you ain't gonna make better hands to fold, nor you can't get from a lot of hands value there. Rather Check behind. But as you bet then you should be also ready to Bet/Fold, I doubt that he is bluffing here. Plus it's just a freeplay pot, not worth. We ain't having that great implied odds.

      As played
      River: Well yeah, that's the problem when you Call it on turn. :) You might even continue making mistakes. You can't be sure if your trips/2pairs are even good enough here. You could be already against straight/FH. What hands do you expect to beat here? Only if he is overplaying his pairs/2pairs you are ahead here. For that he really has to be spewy.

      Best regards.
