      $0.1/$0.2 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      $17.84
      BB(Hero):
      $3.97
      UTG2:
      $25.20

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 7.
      6 folds, SB calls $0.10, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.40) 6, 7, 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.2, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.80.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, sevens (5 7)
      Hero wins with three of a kind, sevens (5 7).


      Is it correct to raise on the flop, or should this hand be slowplayed? Is slowplay an option at all when playing SSS? If raise is correct, should it be a smallish raise like here, or a shove?

      Thanks!
