      So far the biggest lost in my poker carrer (i just started) :

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7:diamond: , 7:club:
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.05) T:diamond: , 8:heart: , 6:spade: (3 players)
      MP3 bets $0.66, CO calls $0.66, Hero raises to $1.32, MP3 calls $0.66, CO raises to $9.19 (All-In), Hero calls $4.45 (All-In), MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($17.33) 3:heart:
      River: ($17.33) J:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $17.33

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6d)
      Hero shows (7d 7c)

      CO wins with three-of-a-kind, sixes (6h 6d)

      Whas there my mistake? Should i felt that he has a set on flop? After all my starting hand was better. I'm playing Short stack strategy

      Hello churchilland,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Well, first of all I'd advice you to read the articles about BSS/MSS/SSS, how much you should buy-in. :) If you play BSS then you should buy-in for 100BB.

      About the play well you totally overplayed your 77 in this spot. Most likely I'd just fold it right on flop. I don't think that many cards are going to help you anyways there.

      Best Regards.
