      Hello,

      Preflop is good.

      I would rather check/fold here on the flop.
      We are in a tough spot being in a sandwich between a fish and a tight player who I think has mostly pocket pairs here and is likely to call us at least once here and even against the draws in their ranges we don't stand really good.
      Also, there are almost no turn cards that we would like.

      I would consider betting here if I had TT for example, but I think 77 is a check.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I could see this being a reason to bet. :P
      I mean, one could argue: every turn card is bad for us, so it's an easy Cbet.

      Well, to me it's rather a reason not to bet.
      Since we are not being comfortable betting on most of the turn cards, neither check/calling, so we just make the pot bigger and will have hard time playing the turn.
