      BTN: $0.82 (41 bb)
      SB: $0.89 (44.5 bb)
      BB: $5.75 (287.5 bb)
      UTG: $4.07 (203.5 bb)
      MP: $1.63 (81.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.58 (129 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7 7
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, BTN folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds, MP calls $0.06

      Flop: ($0.26) 6 T 7 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.24, MP calls $0.24, Hero raises to $0.86, SB calls $0.57, MP calls $0.62

      Turn: ($2.79) Q (3 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $1.40, MP calls $0.69 and is all-in

      River: ($4.17) 8 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      $4.17 pot ($0.15 rake)
      Final Board: 6 T 7 Q 8
      SB showed 2 A and lost (-$0.89 net)
      MP showed J T and lost (-$1.63 net)
      Hero showed 7 7 and won $4.02 ($2.39 net)

      Both villains are unknown.

      PF: I iso-raise MP limp to build a pot in the case I hit my set or try to take it down on the Flop with a c-bet.

      Flop: Connected but still pretty dry. When Sb bets pot, I'm convinced he will get his whole stack in anyway regardless if I raise or on later streets. MP's range can have any Tx, pair+GS, 2p or even slowplayed sets as well.

      I decided to raise anyway in case an ugly card like 8 or 9 falls and he doesn't like it.

      Turn: MP is committed so no problems in getting him to call off his stack.

      Alternative line is to call flop, and then raise-shove Turn?

      Very standard. A good way to decide on whether to raise flop or turn is to see the number of action kilingcards on the turn.

      For this hand its also a 3way situation so raising flop becomes more desirable
