      Hi,
      I know that 77 UTG is not a raising hand, but didn't want to fold it, and don't like to open-limp :) Anything wrong with the rest of the hand? I'm especially not sure about the check on the turn; my idea was to give MP1 a chance to complete a draw if he was drawing. Maybe betting $0.68 on the turn and $1 on the river was more profitable?

      Thanks!

      Marginal PF raise, but certainly fine. I wouldnt do it if id had a run of cards recently (I want to protect a tight image) but if my VPIP is slipping too low on a table due to a cold deck ill happily raise 77 UTG (dont want a rock image).

      Flop line is good.

      Turn - shove him all in here. Pot is already at such a size that if he is on a spades draw he will think he has good odds to call. Even TPGK A7-type hands will call for $1.70 at a $5.07 pot most of the time.

      So I was correctly feeling bad about the turn :) You're right, he wouldn't have called the river if he didn't complete his draw, and on the turn he had excellent odds to call with OESD/FD
      Thanks!

      I disagree about the flop, Why do you give MP1 a free card?
      straight and flash draws are out there. put him all in. Make him pay for the draw.

      Hello,

      Preflop: It's fine to raise 77 from UTG.
      Flop: I'd Raise/Shove here directly, the board is pretty drawy.

      As played
      Turn: Shoving the turn.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      You arnt giving free cards because AFAIK you cant raise - the "shove" isnt big enough.
