      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:club: , 7:club: .
      [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.10, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], Button calls $0.10, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Hero checks.

      River: ($4.15) A:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Final Pot: $4.15

      I know that draws are usually played passively, especially from the BB, but I figured that this 15-out monster draw was strong enough that I needed to either get money in the pot or drive out other draws. Was this a correct line of reasoning?
