This is a discussion on $2 NLHE Full Ring: Turn decision with 7-high straight within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; 1st hand of the today session. I've been trying some Zoom for the last 3 days.

To be honest I would be raising right on the flop, very wet connected board, you will get called by a lot of worse hands [like 2 overcards], and you have a redraw to the straight.
On the turn as played it can go either way, you can check and see if your opponents will take a shot at the river, or you can lead out yourself for value. Just depends on how strong you suspect your opponents are. I think I would size down on both streets because I wouldnt expect them to be too strong here, maybe you can induce a bluff or something on the river.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: Turn decision with 7-high straight
As played i think a bet on turn is better than checking. Hard for others to have a 7 there. They might have a set since they limp called pre and can also have some type of 88 99 TT or JJ on sb so you want to bet and get value now from all those hands before a big card drops in the river. A or K will probably scare all the 88-JJ type hand and If they have a set you can actually get some small value on the river too unless it pairs the board.

Yes, that's what I was thinking. They both called the flop bet, I put one of them on an overpair and the other on a low-end draw with an A2, a gutshot with a 98, a set.
I was sure that I could take a call on the turn. I agree also that a check isn't so bad here.
The mistake I see now is that I didn't raise the flop. I should definitely raise.
