      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7:spade: , 7:club:
      MP3 raises to $0.15, CO calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, 2 folds.

      River: ($2.98) J:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.98

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows (8s 8c)
      Hero shows a full-house, sevens full of tens (7s 7c)

      Hero wins with a full-house, sevens full of tens (7s 7c)

      I confused myself this hand. 3 way sandwiched in the middle.

      Called the flop intending to come over the top if OR raised the bet from CO.

      On the turn I hated that card cause T9 is in villain's range. However I raised still for value and protection as I put him on a 10 and I didn't want to see any higher card on the river.

      River came a J which completes so many draws but all I had in mind was crap TJ got there too. However, I never put villain on FD or a 8 so it's basically T9 to AT.

      Was I playing too scared? Should I go for thin value on the river and fold to a shove?

      Hello cheekopeh,

      I'd most likely raise even bigger the turn and of course bet the river for value. :) If he really decides to shove then yeah, we can still fold our hand since 99/T9/JT is also possible which beat us. But doubt that he would raise with any worse.

      Best Regards.
