      Fish's first hand at table. Posted bb out of turn and checked it... after that, nothing made sense. :s_confused:

      We can call down here, right?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T, T.
      MP2 posts deadblind, MP1 calls $0.25, MP2 checks, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 4 folds, MP2 calls $1.25.

      Flop: ($3.6) 7, 4, A (2 players)
      MP2 bets $1.25, Hero raises to $3.25, MP2 calls $2.00.

      Turn: ($10.1) 7 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75.

      River: ($17.6) 2 (2 players)
      MP2 bets $6.50, Hero calls $6.50.

      Final Pot: $30.6.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, tens and sevens(Th Tc).
      MP2 shows a pair of sevens(6h Jh).

      Hero wins with two pairs, tens and sevens(Th Tc).

      It actually screams of Ax hand and fishy CS. I think most of these players do not let Ax hands go to muck when they pair the ace.

      Your line looks exactly as a pocket pair 88+ which wants to either end the hand on the flop because of an Ace or see cheap showdown (calling turn). Not saying that this blind poster is taking care of what you hold :-)

      I'm not sure, but calling flop may be better, because you are in position and still can control the pot size on later streets.

      Just my 2cents...

      I think calldown is fine, since he can take that line with worse hands than Ax or 7x
