      Checked intially as I wasn't looking closely at my hand due to other table action.

      Was worried that I could potentially be against a better staight but figured I have to try to get it in on the flop as my hand will not get stronger.

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4:spade: , 3:club:
      CO folds, BU calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.15) 7:club: , 6:club: , 5:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, BU bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.81, BB raises to $2.73, BU folds, Hero raises to $7.58 (All-In), BB calls $0.43 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Turn: ($6.62) Q:diamond:
      River: ($6.62) 3:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $6.62

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, seven high (4s 3c)
      BB shows (Ac 9c)

      Hero wins with a straight, seven high (4s 3c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Not really a huge fan of completing such hands. :D They way too often put you into trouble like having some kind of 2pairs and then overplaying them. :( Especially while the guys are even not fully stacked.

      As played
      Postflop: Most likely I'd just Bet myself here to protect my hand. But as we Check it then we Check/Raise/Broke, no way we are folding our made hand if we completed preflop.

      Best Regards.
