      Preflop: Hero is BB with Q:spade: , K:heart:
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.50, 2 folds, CO checks, 2 folds, Hero raises to 3.0, MP1 calls $3.00, 1 folds,

      Flop: 7:heart: , 7:diamond: , 7:spade: ( $7.75 ) very bad flop for us + im out of position...
      Hero checks, MP1 checks,

      Turn: 4:spade: ( $7.75 )

      River: 2:spade: ( $7.75 )

      So, what would be better? Cont-bet or check/fold?

      Why not bet on the flop and represent a pocket pair?

      Hmm if you c-bet, you have to go all-in. If your opponent has a pocket pair he very likely will call. If he has Overcards and A-high he might call. If he has trash he will fold. Against A-high you have to improve.

      With your preflop position it could be hard to represent a Pocket Pair, since your raising range includes a lot of non-pair hands as well.

      So I think its ok to play check/fold unimproved here.
