      I played this hand today and I am not sure what to think about it in hindsight:

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, A.
      MP2 raises to $0.16, MP3 calls $0.16, 2 folds, SB calls $0.14, Hero calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.64) 7, 3, Q (4 players)
      SB bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.96, SB raises to $4.75, Hero calls $4.59, MP3 calls $3.79.

      Turn: ($14.89) 6 (2 players)
      Hero raises to $0.09, MP3 calls $0.09.

      River: ($15.07) 2 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $15.07.
      Results follow:

      MP3 shows a pair of queens(Q T).
      Hero shows a flush, ace high(7 A).
      SB shows three of a kind, threes(3 3).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(7 A).

      MP3 had a habit of overbetting the flop (often even pushing) with top-pair - often worse and even calling raises to his big bet, so I was pretty sure he would call this time aswell (70-80 % (?)) (especially with 2 stacks to win). I was not concerned he would be able to beat me if I hit a 7 or my flush.

      SB was rather passive but since MP3s play was very obivous I was pretty sure he had observed it aswell. I put him on AA, KK, QQ, AQ, 33, second nut flush draw, possibly sevens.

      What should I think about my flop call?

      It's fine, even if MP3 didn't technically call it off yet when you're asked to make the call, it's a fair assumption that he's not folding after making that huge flop raise, so you're implicitly getting 3:1 implied odds on a call. This would be enough with the lone nut flushdraw, but you also have a pair to go with it, so you're not in bad shape against anything for that price ever.

      That said, I would probably just raise SB's small bet myself to begin with, unless my plan was specifically to have MP3 raise with garbage behind me, so that I could come over the top and make him fold his garbage hands without a showdown.

      Hope it helps.
