      I had a good read on a guy who had been raising and reraising with any two and then slow playing good made hands, so was pretty confident when he re-raised my initial pot raise.

      Probably should have raised more on the flop but I wanted him to play and knew a min raise would induce the push so once again I got caught in my own trap.

      Known players:

      0.5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:diamond: , J:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $3.50, 2 folds, BB raises to $12.00, Hero calls $8.50.

      Flop: ($24.50) 7:spade: , 2:heart: , J:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $18.00, Hero raises to $42.00, BB raises to $419.02 (All-In), Hero raises to $150.75 (All-In).

      Turn: ($594.27) 7:diamond:
      River: ($594.27) T:diamond:

      Final Pot: $594.27

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, jacks and sevens (Ad Jd)
      BB shows three of a kind, sevens (9h 7h)

      BB wins with three of a kind, sevens (9h 7h)

      Your flop raise is fine and if you think that he might make a move with worse hand then raising tptk on dry flop is fine.
      I think b/c pf is fine, but also b/f or 4-bet bluff could be consider, since if you hit your tp then it hard to get away in 150bb deep.
      Nh, unlucky that he sucked out.
