      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , A:club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) A:diamond: , A:spade: , 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.25) 7:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.50.

      River: ($3.25) 4:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $1.00, BB calls $0.90.

      Final Pot: $5.25

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows four of a kind, aces (Ah Ac)
      BB shows two pairs, aces and sevens (Js 7d)

      Hero wins with four of a kind, aces (Ah Ac)

      Any better lines to maximise value? I figured a re-raise on the flop would drive off pretty much everything. I do not need to protect here at all just want the chips to go in.

      nh. All I have to say is that if you don't usually minraise, you might give off a read that you minraise the nuts, making you prone to get less credit for your normal raises. IMO raise the turn normally to show that you play the nuts the same way as you play any other hand that you need to protect.

      i agree here . raise turn here because he calls with lots of draws and maybe a 5 or 7
