      Don't raise A7 in MP. Especially A7o.

      When betting on the flop, and him calling, you should've known he probably had you kickered (You were playing A7!)

      The turn bet to me makes little sense - you should've known you were beat due to the flop call, I definitely wouldn't have bet so high, if at all. Even if we were chasing the flush here, if they're giving us a cheap card then I'd take it.

      The river all in... If you were attempting to bluff at a flush - it failed. I would've avoided it entirely with a check/fold.

      In conclusion, I would not have got involved in that hand at all.

      Hello foulkezboyz,

      Preflop: Rather don't isolate such hands from MP3, you are putting yourself exactly in those situations where you overplay your hand like that.

      As played
      Postflop: Betting the flop & turn is fine but I don't really see why we should be betting the river, pretty easy Check/Fold.

      Best Regards.
