      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.03/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      UTG folds, UTG1 calls $0.05, UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.05, 4 folds, SB calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.35, UTG1 folds, MP1 calls $0.30, SB folds.

      Flop: ($0.8) 7, T, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP1 raises to $1.22(All-In), Hero calls $0.62.

      Turn: ($3.24) 7 (2 players)

      River: ($3.24) 8 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.24.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of sevens(A K).
      MP1 shows two pairs, tens and sevens(T Q).

      MP1 wins with two pairs, tens and sevens(T Q).

      When I played it, it totally felt wrong. While analyzing it, I put opponent giving him a range of 77,TT, 55, any two hearts, T2o+, T2s+. This range gives me an equity of 25.44%, while I only needed equity of 19% to make the call. So how should this have been played? Villain stats 34/0/1.3/30 Hands (VPIP, PFR, AF).

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger here at least $0,40.
      Postflop: Well, if you are going to CB here then just ship directly for the fold equity. Or otherwise I'd just Check/Fold it vs such a stack and play. We most likely don't have much fold equity anyways, he is going to continue with any draw/pair.

      Best Regards.

      The pre-flop raise was a standard one, 4bb+1 for every limper which made it 7 bb which is what was raised. I do agree with the post flop play that should have been Check/Fold or directly gone all in with a small stack against you.
