      Villain is unknown.

      I call the flop here being "clever" and hoping that he won't suspect too much and I can slowplay later. Also if I call I figure there's more chance of the other guys calling, which would be pretty great since I can then bet lower in relation to the pot and give them some nice odds. Should I have just raised here?

      Since we lose the other guys on the turn, I raise here because at this point, I really want money in the pot.

      And on the river I'm forced to bet near pot-size and, meh, fold. As played, better to bet less here? Is he going to be suspicious of the large bet on the second 7?

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: looks fine considering the amount of limpers.

      Flop: The flop is really dry so I don't mind calling to keep at least one or more players in the pot.

      Turn: The 2 is a blank and since he bets small I don't mind raising however we should be aware that his range is usually not very strong (if he bets small to induce the money goes in anyway but if he bets small because he is weak there won't be much more money going in).

      River: Considering that all draws missed and he is most likely not calling weaker hands I don't mind betting big to get max value from Qx type hands and maybe some second pairs.
