I don't mind my play here as the table has been playing quite solidly and this guy had laid down to a similar play earlier when he raised utg pf and I was short stacked.

I think I played very well considering I was card dead for the most part.

My biggest decision came when I was in the BB with T7 of hearts and had a few limpers, so I checked. Flop came :heart: :heart: :spade: and had one min bet to call for the turn with all else folding. Turn came :heart: so I checked hoping to raise him if he bet and the other guy checked. River came :heart: and the other guy bet 3/4 the pot which would have been more than half my stack so after a lot of thought I folded.

Let me know what you guys think of these plays.

Off to bed now to get ready for MiniFTOPs #2
