      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (SB): 137.8 BB
      BB: 102.7 BB
      CO: 77.6 BB
      BTN: 150.5 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 7:diamond: 8:diamond:

      CO raises to 2 BB, BTN calls 2 BB, Hero calls 1.5 BB, BB calls 1 BB

      Flop: (8 BB, 4 players) 3:diamond: 5:club: 4:spade:
      Hero checks, BB checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: (8 BB, 4 players) 6:heart:
      Hero bets 7 BB, BB calls 7 BB, fold, fold

      River: (22 BB, 2 players) J:heart:
      Hero bets 128.8 BB, fold

      Hero shows 7:diamond: 8:diamond: (Straight, Eight High)
      Hero wins 20.6 BB

      Is my push ok ? I think bad players call with 7x, maybe even set. He is unknown.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine given the odds

      Postflop: checking the flop with the intention of folding is perfectly fine.

      On the turn I like our bet and while there aren't a ton of strong hands they can have some slowplayed sets/2p or 7x.

      7x won't fold there but we can expect most 7x to raise the river, so our focus should be on maximizing value versus the rest of his range.

      if for some reason you don't think 7x raises there then shoving is superior.

      Otherwise I'd just bet 14-15 BB to give 2p/sets a better calling chance.
