      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 7:spade: 7:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Hero bets $0.65, UTG calls $0.65

      Turn: ($1.95, 2 players) 3:spade:

      Hero mucks 7:spade: 7:heart: (Three of a Kind, Sevens) (Pre 19%, Flop 7%, Turn 2%)
      UTG shows Q:diamond: Q:heart: (Three of a Kind, Queens) (Pre 81%, Flop 93%, Turn 98%)
      UTG wins $9.29

      and then thinking I was hoping to pair the board on turn/river :P .

      Why don't you check the Flop? I would only lead here if I knew that villain has a really low Flop cbet % so the leading option for me would be more of an adjustment to villain's tendencies cos by default you should always check to the raiser if he is expected to Cbet on the Flop most of the time.

      I think I would just c/c 3 streets, raising Flop would probably be overplay with bottom set. I do think leading is a decent option though, because it's not a hand that's strong enough to play for stacks, but it's good enough for 3 bets against AA/KK which are hands which may call down thrice but would probably fold to an all-in bet at some point.

      The flop size is a little too large, I think you can just bet 50cents there, other than that I think it's fine.
