      This hand had very interesting development. preflop standart play imho. flop I was ready to check/fold but then 3 guys gave me nice odds and Ive decided this is profitable enough to call. Can you help me with this point?

      On turn I was happy as a hippo, then Ive seen straight and realised I am doomed and river saved the day :D :P

      Very nice catch! :) I think I would have done the same, you have odds to call here :P and I think it's +EV as well, lets see what judges advice.

      Pot odds (12.5 + (3x7.75)) = $35.75
      You invest $7.75 giving you a pot odds of 4.6:1

      I assume you have Xarry's Odds chart and with 4.6:1 based on 2 cards, you can count yourself 4 á 5 outs.

      I only see 2 (your sevens) and you need 11:1 for that. so I think it's -EV

      I recommend just check/folding this one next time ;)

      Again thanks gerv easy check fold on the flop you have 1,8 outs assuming that sometimes JJ is out there against t9 your 7 is not clean etc.
