      Fish has VP85 after 40 hands.

      Any other way I should have played this ?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      MP2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, BU calls $0.05, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.25, MP2 folds, BU calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.57) 7, 6, 3 (2 players)

      Results follow:

      BU shows a full-house, sixs full of sevens(6d As).

      BU wins with a full-house, sixs full of sevens(6d As).

      If you think about his preflop range there are a lot more 6x 7x hands than pocket pairs, even tho there are 2 of each card on the board. Considering 98/spades/clubs draws busted, i think going for a check/call is reasonable on that river if he's at all capable of betting (some very loose passive players never bet), tho shoving yourself isn't bad by any means and is mandatory if you don't think he has it in him to throw in a bluff in there.

      Hope it helps.
