      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 7:diamond: 7:spade:

      UTG calls $0.02, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, fold, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.07, 3 players) Q:diamond: 6:diamond: 4:spade:
      BB checks, UTG bets $0.03, Hero calls $0.03, fold

      Turn: ($0.13, 2 players) 8:spade:
      UTG bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06

      River: ($0.25, 2 players) A:spade:
      UTG bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      Hero mucks 7:diamond: 7:spade: (One Pair, Sevens) (Pre 19%, Flop 11%, Turn 14%)
      UTG shows J:heart: J:diamond: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 81%, Flop 89%, Turn 86%)
      UTG wins $0.31

      He kept betting small so I kept calling.
      When should I have stopped?

      At the flop => No set no bet/call :)
      Any stats on villain?

      I know the standard strategy tells to limp behind, but i'd like to raise PP against limpers even against UTG. Then take it down with a CBet.

      I think u are right. Maybe it should be a raise pf.

      But as for now I follow the course and wait till the coaches tells me to open up pf:-)

      Hello StraGus,

      Preflop: Rather isolate it preflop than make such Calls as you did. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Just fold it on flop, we can't even be sure how good our 77 is here while he bets into multiway pot. But if you Call then you should also consider Calling till river while he could have weaker pairs/draws.

      Best Regards.
