      Results follow:

      UTG2 shows a flush, ace high(Kd Ad).
      Hero shows three of a kind, sevens(7h 7c).

      UTG2 wins with a flush, ace high(Kd Ad).

      Stats on UTG2, 67/33/100/5.0 over 3 hands (vpip/prf,contbet/af).
      Shaping up to be loose-aggresive, who tends to cbet a lot of flops..

      Stats on MP2, 15/5/0/100/0.0 over 20 hands (vpip/pfr/cbet/fold to cbet/af)
      Seems like a weak-tight-passive opponent who looks to setmine and gets it in with only the nuts, usually folds a lot of cbets..

      Stats on BB, 50/25/0/100/0.0 over 5 hands (vpip/pfr/cbet/fold to cbet/af).
      Loose-passive so far with a fit-or-fold tendencies, 'nuff said?

      So, I call with 77o, obviously the UTG2 is good candidate for that with big stack and being aggressive and all.. The flop is good, obv, and I hit a best set. The UTG2 cbets, which doesn't surprises me all that much and I just call.. Wrong move? o.O Now that I think about it, I should have raise for protection, no?

      The turn card is blank, imo, and he bets about 1/2 pot size. So I re-raise him 3x and he just calls..

      The riv card is horrible, it completes the flush. :facepalm: He bets a little bigger than a 1/2 of the pot, and I just call, see, didn't go crazy with my set because I imagine he'll have the flush here some times, and given his play I put him on the flush, or some overpair..

      Hmm, opinions? Should I be looking to fast-play this kind of hands on the flop, and don't allow for this to happen?

      Flop is kind of wet, I would probably raise. Calling is not bad though. Turn raise is mandatory. Calling river is standard.

      Hello eXtremeACE,

      Flop: Raise it and rather protect your hand, you have still people behind you who could easily get the drawing odds and obviously UTG2 could have it already.

      As played
      Turn: Raise it even bigger, we want to protect our hand!

      As played
      River: What do you think he is donk/calling the turn with and then even donking the river with after FD also completes? Doubt that we have many hands beat there even, I would just leave the pot alone cause I can't really see hands what he would do that with.

      Best Regards.
