      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)       

      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:spade: , 6:spade:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0,25, 4 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,60) 8:diamond: , 4:diamond: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0,25, Hero raises to $1,00, MP2 calls $0,75.

      Turn: ($2,60) 7:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3,55 (All-In), MP2 calls $3,55.

      River: ($9,70) Q:spade:

      Final Pot: $9,70

      Don´t know how to play my straight. I chose check/raise- push if any :diamond: wouldn´t come. I think that better way should be check/call all the way if there doesn´t come 4th diamond. That´s just so sick, that I´ve flopped straight and I´m drawing dead. Nothing to win, much to loose.

      I would never risk a free-card here as you may possibly:

      Get outdrawn.

      Lose your action.

      Or get bluffed out if another :diamond: comes.

      I also like to be seen to bet my occasional monsters from the BB as I like to sometimes bluff from here as well.

      $0.50 bet on the flop from me and if I win no more on the hand then so be it.

      Honestly I like to push that flop. His bet more looks like a try to see a cheap Turn and he is on a Draw. Even your Straight can be outdrawn by another Straight. Thats why I would push here, to let a FD pay.

      If he would like to see a cheap turn card he could easily check/behind. I would bet on the flop (~$0.60) and push to a raise. As you played it: nice push on the turn.

      Good luck at the tables!
