      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , Q:spade:
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.00, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.25) 9:diamond: , 4:spade: , 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.10, MP3 calls $1.10.

      Turn: ($4.45) 7:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      River: ($4.45) 3:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      Final Pot: $6.45

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of sevens (As Qs)
      MP3 shows two pairs, eights and sevens (8h 8d)

      MP3 wins with two pairs, eights and sevens (8h 8d)

      This guy is very loose and showed weakness at the turn. Besides calling $1 is not a lot for a $4 pot. I thought that I had a small chance that I was ahead and thought that he might be bluffing. Right to call river bet?
