      this is a hypothetical hand... when i bet out i didn't reason. i wanted him to fold really, i didn't want to see a raise as much as i didn't believe a 7 is in his range. if he raised, do i stick the chips in? do i fold assuming im behind 7x or KKK77?

      my other question is can we ever check on this flop? even though there are 2 spades out there, if i bet - i want him to fold (so im assuming this is leaning towards a bluff) because if he calls i don't really know what he is calling with except for AK/QK/QQ/JJ/TT/99/88 sort of hands. so basically, they will either fold (so i lose value from worse hands) or they will raise (and i will be in a tough spot and will probably be beaten). not sure if my thinking here is right and maybe i should just aim to get it in on this flop.

      Hello DrDunne,

      Against not even a full stack I am also playing for the stacks. He may easily raise with Kx and maybe even worse/draws there. I am going broke. :)

      And nope, we can't check the flop!

      Best Regards.
