      Villain is a monkey from what I have seen of him so far.
      in a different session he sucked out out & doubled up, then spew-shoved it all away.

      on the flop I could not decide if his min-bet donk was blocking or trying to induce.
      I guessed blocking because he should expect C-bet on that board.
      I should have raised bigger. my sizing is pretty confused most of the time.

      I guess I lost my nerve on the turn and was more worried about the 77 than the flush draw.
      how to chose between pot control (way ahead/way behind) and protecting hand from draw?

      after I checked back T and he still checked R, I figured he did not have trips, so I bet 2/3P for value.
      probably too small again.
      or maybe I should not have bet at all.

      Hello William340,

      Preflop: Raise it even bigger ~$0,28 for being OOP + vs 2 limps.

      As played
      Postflop: Just Bet/Bet/Bet vs his stack. :) Has enough of worse hands in his range.

      Best Regards.
