      I played the hand below on 888 without specific info on many of the players as i only just joined the table.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $2.10
      SB:
      $2.00
      BB (Hero):
      $0.80
      UTG1:
      $0.64
      UTG2:
      $1.98
      MP1:
      $3.78
      MP2:
      $2.00
      MP3:
      $2.00
      CO:
      $2.52


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, 7.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, MP2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.1) 8, 6, 2 (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP1 checks, MP2 checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($0.1) 5 (5 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.10, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, BU folds, SB folds.

      River: ($0.3) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.22, MP2 calls $0.22.

      Final Pot: $0.74.


      My thought process:

      preflop: 5way limp, I check from the BB. Nothing wrong with that i guess.
      flop: I have a gutshot out of position. My plan is to check/fold, or call if the bet is small. Against 4 other players i don't think i can lead out here.
      turn: I hit, have a low straight and get a flushdraw. I lead out for value expecting to get called by flushdraws, or raised by a higher straight. <-- may not be correct?
      There is one caller.
      river: offsuite ace. I am still wary of the higher straight and I decide to raise/fold.

      Is there a better play on the river? Would you suggest to raise/call, or check/call?


      Thanks.

      On turn i will bet more for protection.
      There are still flushdraw and straith draw, who will call that 1/2 pot bet.
      But i have no idea if i will be raised on turn..
      I am affraid of flush more than straith.

      Best regards,
      Alesh

      Hey,

      I think you can overbet the Pot to like 15-17cents. If you get raised, you can comfortably fold as he will have a flush often.

      then on the River, I bet like 40-50% as he A is a scare card for his range that you still get value from.

      Again on the RIver, I fold on a raise

      Best regards,
      Gerv
