      Read: Nothing in particular, except that UTG is limping his fair share of pots, including with A + rag, but raises preflop with the better hands. But this is from a few hands only.

      Microgaming - £0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: £6.70
      Hero (BTN): £4.00
      SB: £6.75
      BB: £4.35
      UTG: £3.36
      MP: £4.19

      SB posts SB £0.02, BB posts BB £0.04

      Pre Flop: (pot: £0.06) Hero has T:heart: 7:heart:

      UTG calls £0.04, MP raises to £0.16, fold, Hero calls £0.16, fold, fold, UTG calls £0.12

      Flop: (£0.54, 3 players) 2:spade: 7:spade: A:diamond:
      UTG checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (£0.54, 3 players) 3:club:
      UTG bets £0.26, fold, Hero calls £0.26

      River: (£1.06, 2 players) K:spade:
      UTG bets £0.52, Hero raises to £1.56, fold

      Hero wins £2.01

      My river raise is targeting Ax (and perhaps 88/99/TT, if that is what he has). I am representing whatever the board lets me represent in his eyes (which would probably mostly be a flush or a fishy rivered two pair).

      Question: Am I too optimistic about peoples ability to fold to a river raise at these stakes?

      I don´t like your pre-flop call. T7s is marginal hand and mostly doe snot flop anything good- if you want to play it profitable then 3-betting is better option.
      Postflop I would prefer bet flop for value and if get called then mostly give up.
      Not sure if you´re ahead enough times to call turn. River bluffshove is fine- he would likely b/f his Ax hands (although he may also be just bluffing smt like 44/55 and you shoved there for value :)

      best regards,
