      0,15/0,25 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 3:spade: , 3:diamond:
      MP2 raises to $0,90, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,75, BB calls $0,65.

      Flop: ($2,70) 7:heart: , 5:diamond: , 3:club: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP2 bets $2,15, Hero raises to $5,00, BB folds, MP2 calls $2,85.

      I raised to get the pot bigger and don't let the BB in cheap.
      Would just a call with a ~$5 donk on Turn and shove on river be better?

      Turn: ($12,70) Q:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6, MP2 calls $6,00.

      River: ($24,70) A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero raises $12,85 (All-In), MP2 calls $12,85.

      Final Pot: $50,40

      I like small c/r on the flop. No-one would going to b/f their overpairs and you get more money+ initiative, so you can then bet half pot on the turn and shove river.
      A is not the best card, since it is hard him to call with worse hands, but I think you can´t c/f and he can have maybe some A7s, A5s type hands or KK that would call you down, so shove is fine.
