      I think preflop and the flop are ok.

      On the turn, i decided to ch/c and ch/r river. I thought that i will stack Qx/77 anyway, but i can get value from floats or PP turned into a bluff? Is this line better than bet/bet/bet?

      Its a pretty imbalanced line but vs a mediocre opponent i like it. Qx/draws/77 will bet anyway on the turn and we fold out TT/99 mostly if we bet again on the ace.

      It seems like a good idea to take this line so u can raise and play for stacks as opposed to betting again (u lose value from some weaker draws and qx which may opt to call down).

      Just keep in mind who your opponent is. I think its a great play at nl50 cos few people ever checks qx here and folds to the raise imo.

      Nice hand.
