      BTN: $9.55 (95.5 bb)
      SB: $5.60 (56 bb)
      Hero (BB): $23.76 (237.6 bb)
      CO: $21.36 (213.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7 7
      CO raises to $0.30, BTN folds, SB calls $0.25, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.90) 5 3 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, CO calls $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2.40) K (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.45, CO calls $1.45, SB folds

      River: ($5.30) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      $5.30 pot ($0.26 rake)
      Final Board: 5 3 2 K T
      Hero showed 7 7 and won $5.04 ($2.79 net)
      CO mucked 4 4 and lost (-$2.25 net)

      this was an interesting hand.

      CO is a solid reg, 22/19 over 3k hands.

      preflop i set mine...

      on the flop i don't really think villain will be cbetting into 2 with air which means he won't be cbetting too much. thought i'd experiment with donk betting here. i expect to get floated a bit light so the plan was to barrel once more on the turn.

      on the turn it's a great barrel card and although i could still be ahead with my 77 vs something like AJ, AQ, AT or something i thought it would be much better to barrel here instead of checking and seeing a (likely) scary river and checking again.

      this play seems a bit tricky so i'm not so sure about it. what do you think?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: So you don't think villain will cbet a lot? How about all his Ax or hands with backdoors/overcards?

      He is IP so I think he will cbet quite a bit.

      Now, on the other hand donking can isolate SB to us (fish) which is the main reason why I'd bet. I also think that we should bet larger for value.

      As played why do we expect to get floated light when there's a fish behind? Because we bet small?
