      Hi carrapa,

      Flop: Your bet here is clearly for value and protection, against 44-66 and many Ace highs which will never fold this flop. People don't really fold Ace high on low paired boards because it's just hard to make a pair on such boards.

      Turn: I no longer think you have value betting the Turn. While you are ahead of 44/55/66, you are behind 88/99/TT. Ace high is never calling (unless he has AJ), and perhaps he could have some flush draws like KcQc or KcTc but that isn't a huge part of his range.

      I'm not going to say betting Turn is bad, but if you bet you should size your bets smaller (30 cents). We want to keep all of his worse hands in and your huge bet is going to chase away hands like 44-66 and Ace high.

      River: No value now, no point turning 77 into a bluff, so check.
