      Blinds: $0.25/$0.50
      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $56.37
      Hero: $58.65
      CO: $54.09
      Button: $34.75
      SB: $38.25
      BB: $101.22

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG+1 with 7:club: 6:club:
      UTG folds, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $2[/color], CO calls, 3 folds.

      working on playing pretty agressively preflop, won't usually raise this hand here

      Flop: 5:diamond: 7:diamond: 3:diamond: ($4.75, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $4[/color], CO calls.

      This is a good flop for me, and I though my hand needed protection so I bet pretty big

      Turn: 4:club: ($12.75, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $9[/color], CO calls.

      I've hit my straight but don't want to see another diamond, so I bet pretty big again

      River: 5:heart: ($30.75, 2 players)
      Hero checks, [color:#cc0000]CO bets $20[/color], Hero calls.

      When he calls my turn bet I'm worried about him having the made flush or maybe a set/2 pair that turned into a fullhouse on the river, so I check call the river. I though I was probably beat when I called, but didn't think I should fold the straight...bad call by me??

      I like how you played pf, flop and turn.
      c/c river is fine. I´ll never gonna play c/f straight, since villain hasn´t shown any strength so far. If he had two pair or set, he´d re-raise flop to protect his hand.
      So only hand that beat you is flopped flush and that is so unlikely.
      Since players would check back a lot on that river, if they don´t have very good hand, then I like to lead out myself 25$ and fold to the shove.
      c/c is good when you think that player could have flushdraw and now taking a stab on the pot.
