      You should always raise 4BBx1BB per limper. So in this case you should raise to .80 cents. You could also move all in directly to create the most fold equity and is just a better move in this situation in my opinion. Your hand is a good hand pre flop but a lot of bad cards can come off and create a tough situation post flop like what happened here.

      Moving all in on the flop is a bad decision. It's true that you should move all in here against one opponent in several cases. But the board is very draw heavy and with the over cards I would just check/fold here. Your not going to get most players to lay down a 1 card back door flush draw let alone the straight as well. Plus you could easily already be beat by an ace or jack. Definitely check/fold.

      Raise bigger pre flop/ go all in if there are 4+ limpers.

      Hey badpinguin,

      77 plays very bad postflop, specially out of position and if you make a proper raise preflop you will be commited on any flop, so just push preflop with 3+ limpers when you are sitting in the blinds.

      As played, I would prefer to just check/fold the hand, because your flush draw is only 7 high and there are 2 overcards on the flop and the pot is 3-way. Even though the articles say you should play a strong draw as made hand, I think this time c/f is better, because you should discount outs big time for your low FD.

      Regards,
