      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($25)
      BB ($26.01)
      UTG ($37.13)
      Hero ($25)
      CO ($25.96)
      BTN ($10.42)

      Dealt to Hero 7:diamond: 7:spade:

      UTG calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.20, CO calls $1.20, fold, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.95

      FLOP ($3.95) T:diamond: 4:diamond: 5:heart:

      UTG checks, Hero ???,

      Villains are 72/9 and 63/16 respectively with high agg frequencies.

      My default in spots like this is to bet and proceed cautiously if called, mostly giving up on the river. I feel like checking back is just giving up on the hand in spots my opponents can have lots of air but also betting flop and giving up on the turn seems quite weak as well since there are tons on draws in their ranges.

      In this spot I bet and if :
      -both call I give up unless turn is a 7
      -MP calls I usually bet turn for free showdown
      -CO calls I c/c if villain is aggressive and bet if he is passive.
      -both fold I take the money :D
      Decent plan ?

      Hi,

      With pair I think betting 3$ would be my preferred line. You can always give up there a lot of broadway hands, so with 77 I would prefer betting both value and protection.

      -both call I give up unless turn is a 7
      -MP calls I usually bet turn for free showdown
      -CO calls I c/c if villain is aggressive and bet if he is passive.

      seems fine. Just don´t know what line should you take if passive co calls ip and you see river card. So for that reason I also dot mind c/c turn even against passive player to have some kind of pot control and induce bet from draws. On scare cards Q, K, A I´d likely bet always and turn my hand into bluff (or of course they might call me with again draws)

      Best regards,
