      I realise I messed up, any corrective actions?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.74 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 2:heart: , 2:spade:
      2 folds, Hero calls $0.02, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO folds, BU calls $0.02, SB calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.10) 7:club: , J:heart: , 2:diamond: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.20, MP3 folds, BU calls $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.70) 7:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.40, BU calls $0.40, BB folds.

      River: ($1.50) 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.38 (All-In), BU calls $1.29 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.08

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a full-house, deuces full of sevens (2h 2s)
      BU shows four of a kind, sevens (7d 7h)

      BU wins with four of a kind, sevens (7d 7h)

      Just open-raise 22 if you're going to play it, limp/calling is rarely ever a good idea. If you don't want to open-raise it from MP1 then fold it.

      As played raise bigger on the flop to $0.30-0.35, bet a tad bigger on the turn too and jam the river, it's fine. You can't avoid that cooler, for every one time he shows up with 77 he'll show up like 10 times with some kind of top pair or 7x that you'll stack all the same, don't worry about it.

      Hope it helps.
