      Was it ok to limp there? Thank you.

      CO = ($2.00)
      BU = ($2.70)
      SB = ($2.53)
      BB = ($3.97)
      UTG2 = ($2.34)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 7 :heart: , 7 :spade: .
      3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.3) 7 :club: , 7 :diamond: , 2 :heart: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($1.1) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.10, Hero raises to $1.67(All-In), SB calls $0.57.

      Final Pot: $4.44.
      Results follow:

      SB shows a full-house, fours full of sevens(4 5).
      Hero shows four of a kind, sevens(7 7).

      Hero wins with four of a kind, sevens(7 7).

      it is never a good idea to limp pocket pairs. (except maybe completing the sb with 3+limpers) .

      you got extremely lucky, but otherwise stick to the chart. 77 from mp is a fold.

      NEVER limp Alex4gnl - if someone raises behind you, you probably fold otherwise you are even going to make an even worser mistake

      On 10NL I found 77s to be fairly weak to be played on MP vs random fish so I just fold this one preflop

      As played, bet the flop for like 10 or 15cents. This way you build up the pot to a way you can go all-in comfortably on the River.

      I found people on micro stakes rather passive than hyperaggressive so I have to do the betting on my own instead of relying on opponents
