      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, 7.
      CO posts deadblind, UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, MP3 calls $0.02, CO checks, 2 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.11) 4, 6, 7 (5 players)
      Hero bets $0.11, UTG2 calls $0.11, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.38, CO folds, Hero raises to $1.98, UTG2 folds, MP3 calls $1.60(All-In).
      An obvious overbet by me. MP3 raising my bet signals real strength, probably a monster. However, even against a range of {44+,Th8h,9h8h,85s,76s,74s,64s,53s,85o,76o,74o,64o,53o} I have an equity of 48.489%, which makes my all-in push +EV even on this heavily draw heavy board.

      Turn: ($4.18) J (2 players)

      River: ($4.18) 9 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.18.

      your range seems quite reasonable... except for the amount of pairs.
      i'd give them 44-88, AA only... and remove Th8h.

      then we're not good for freeplay:

      Board: 4:spade: 6:heart: 7:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    39.10%  35.37%   3.73% { 7d4h }
      CO     60.90%  57.18%   3.73% { AA, 88-44, 85s, 76s, 74s, 64s, 53s, 9h8h, 85o, 76o, 74o, 64o, 53o }

      this might even be a bit too wide of a stacking off range because of there being a looooot of people in the pot. but again, this is NL2, and everyone limped :f_biggrin:

      you usually want to flop at least top two in a freeplay pot, specially with so many people in. even on nl2 this is a fold here imo

      two pair on that board is not really the hand I would want to play for stacks. Unless MP3 is some sort of maniac I expect him to show up straight or sets, so I think b/f would be my first option (it is still 5-way pot)

      best regards,
