      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, sevens (7d 7c)
      MP2 shows a pair of aces (Ad Ac)

      Hero wins with three of a kind, sevens (7d 7c)

      Thoughts: I called the preflop raise for set value (obviously) figuring implied odds of 1:8 if I hit and a very real chance of being paid off by one or two opponents.

      Flop is pretty scary but actually the only heart-heart hand I consider would be AKs. I figure then that I have to bet big for protection against hands with 1 heart.

      The turn shows no heart and since he didn't reraise me on the flop I just push the rest in.
