      Check-fold here, the board is very tricky and there is a higher card on board who could win you. Lets see what judges advice :)

      Great play! No calling here for set value, any raise commits you, so push is the only thing you can go for.

      btw. don't pay attention to veriz's response ;) he sure have missed something.

      Ups sorry :P ye I missed that, thought he went all-in after the flop. But still can't understand why to push here with 77, why not just (3*0.1$ + 0.4$ = 0.7$)? Because of the low stack?

      What happens if he raises $0.7 and got called? The pot would be about $1.7 with $0.8 left in hist stack. This is an istant push situation because of pot commitment. Better to push it directly preflop, hence gaining fold equity.
