      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $10.80
      SB (Hero):
      $5.00
      BB:
      $5.25
      MP1:
      $12.25
      MP2:
      $5.00
      MP3:
      $5.00
      CO:
      $11.35


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7, 6.
      3 folds, CO calls $0.25, BU calls $0.25, Hero calls $0.15, BB checks.

      Flop: ($1) 7, 6, J (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, BB folds, CO calls $0.75, BU folds.

      Turn: ($2.5) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.75, CO calls $1.75.

      River: ($6) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.25(All-In), CO calls $2.25.

      Final Pot: $10.5.

      Is completing the SB here good? Every time I complete I of course play fit or fold, and I'd be looking more for the nut draw rather than a flush because limping ranges of course include Axdd. So is completing the SB here good and the postflop play standard?

      Thanks!

      I honestly do not like this Pablo

      You hit 2p+ 3% of the times and probably playing FDs aggresively can result in everyone folding which means your implied odds do not really justify limping it in.

      I rather want to raise preflop against 2 limpers than limping in and see what the Flop is. mind you BB is a shortstacker so he might shove pre if you complete a little lighter (that's what I would do) if I see CO - SB limping in = weak

      Gerv so you mean you shld raise with 76s instead of just completing against 2 limpers?

      I sometimes raise since you are OOP and need to rely more on fold equity pre and postflop. Furthermore you are not really thrilled with Toppair sevens when your cBet gets raised


      I also fold sometimes since I do not see limping +EV in the near future because sometimes you hand backfires (you flop 2 pair so 76x is the board = straightdraw for others maybe? Or Flush over Flush
