      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:diamond: , 7:spade:
      4 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.20) 8:spade: , 7:heart: , 9:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.60) Q:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.40 (All-In), SB calls $0.90.

      River: ($3.40) A:spade:


      Final Pot: $3.40

      Call is ok - encourages another raise after the turn? Or just raise immediately? Thx.
      p.s. Now I think about it, I guess the board is pretty draw heavy so should have re-raised in case he was on a draw?

      Hi Tim,

      You can raise 77 from BB in this case according to the SHC!

      So pre-flop: Bet 0,50 (4+1BB because SB limped)
      Flop: If you had raised pre-flop, then you could push flop directly.
      As played, raise to 0,60, there is a straight and a flush draw on the board, so don't give him good pot odds to wait for his draw!
      Turn: Push

      I agree with raise, but I dont know if raise .4 or .5 preflop.
      I think that .4 is better.

      when you get freeplay from bb (which you shouldnt with 77 ;) ) and hit a hand:
      bet pot if board is drawheavy
      bet ½ pot if the board is dry

      Raise preflop 0,4 should be fine... and then welcome to valuetown on this board.

      To your postflop play, definitly raise the flop. When he has a T or 6 he gets the money in anyway, when he has no draw alot of cards kill your action so play it fast.
