      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $10.00
      MP2:
      $16.78
      MP3 (Hero):
      $31.29
      CO:
      $10.00
      BU:
      $10.87
      SB:
      $2.37


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with T, 7.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) T, 8, 4 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $1.20, Hero raises to $3.00, BB raises to $9.70, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $3.65.

      For pushing here I would imagine he must have sets or overcards. Therefore there's no chance I'm calling. But what about my raise? It was kind of like a discovery-raise to see. Since I'm a bit sceptic to see why he's check-raising that pot.

      Any thoughts?

      Edit: I mean check-raising that flop

      Hello,

      Preflop I think we have very easy fold with T7s from MP. How do you expect to outplay your opponents with this hand?

      I prefer bet/folding the flop against unknown.

      Best,
