      MP: $1.97
      CO: $1.01

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 4:heart: 4:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.08, fold, CO calls $0.08, fold, SB calls $0.07, fold

      Flop: ($0.26, 3 players) 7:diamond: 6:spade: 4:spade:
      SB bets $0.08, Hero raises to $0.34, CO calls $0.34, fold

      Turn: ($1.02, 2 players) 6:diamond:

      River: ($1.30, 2 players) 2:club:
      Hero checks, CO checks

      F: Raise in order to protect myself from any draws and also gain value from many hands {7X, 5X, XsXs, 88-JJ}

      T: Interesting since now I have the nuts, since my opponent is most likely on a draw, I check to him and let him hang himself if he completes or hopefully he will bluff either way.

      He bets really small, guessing he must be a on a draw because of this.

      R: Since no draws have completed, I check to let him bluff at it.

      I would make him pay his dead draws :f_biggrin:

      You showed aggression on the flop, now checking just warns others about you having the nuts. I would just keep leading. May be a check on a flush river hoping they caught...actually may be not. As if they caught and payed the turn they will call too. If I check it might be to induce bluffs, but I think it will be unlikely to happen as I went so strong on flop then turn...

      So, to make it short: bet turn :D

      raise flop bigger, villain's hands that are calling .26 more are calling .32/.34 more.
      turn: jam turn vs his draws/overpairs that villain will continue to call
