What does he have? Did I misplay the hand, besides maybe actually playing a weak A7 on the button?

AK for 2pr that he tried to slow play? or like a K7 - thought that would be LOL stupid if he did. How about A7 for a split pot.

ya my guess is that if you're beat hes got 99er & now you make a note that he doesnt define his hand ever if it's strong

Raise 4bbs preflop (or even 5 depending on table conditions) - 3bbs is too little with a limper. Rest of the hand is played fine.

BLUFFING?

This one is really tough without a read on the opponent. I really don't think he hit a boat, but there's such a massive range of hands that I wouldn't place him anywhere.

I think you needed to extract more information on this hand to get a better read. the PF raise is fine - 3BB is fine with A7 shorthanded.

However, on the flop, turn and river each time you bet progressively less
(compared to the pot) - about 1/2 pot on the flop, 1/3 on the turn, and less than 1/3 on the river. This is a weak lead, which is fine if your goal is to keep the opponent in the pot. But in terms of being able to read him, you're not getting information - any hand that made at least a good pair on the flop is likely to call you down.

My best guess is that he's bluffing. I wouldn't be surprised to see either two clubs or A-x spades on the showdown. Because you were using a weak lead, your opponent may have taken it for a sign of a weak hand (say, an ace with an unpaired kicker), and is trying to buy the pot from you.

I think you're right to push all-in, and if he actually does have the winning hand, make a note that he must be an extreme slow-play artist.

t1riel, come on down you WIN!!!!!

*** SHOW DOWN ***
EZ2CY - Shows [As 7c] (Full house, sevens full of aces)
BERK3131 - Shows [Kd Kh] (Full house, kings full of sevens)
BERK3131 Collects $33.60 from main pot

Now, two questions One. Who's the bigger donk? Him or me, for the way we played the hand? I know, Me as I lost the money. LOL

Two, I think it was reb that said to make a note of him that he slowplays alot. I don't have much on him in PokerTracker, 135 hands, 39.85 VP$IP and won $13.75 @.25 cent table. Now is there somehow in PT that will show me a person likes to slow play. Keep in mind I'm the one that posted I don't totally understand all the uses of PT.

Thanks again for the replies.

King Donk award goes to your opponent. He flops trips, and then checks with two clubs on the board. And an A on the board.
So not only is he losing an opportunity to increase the pot when he's got the best hand, he's willing to give a free card to anyone holding an A or a couple clubs.
Ironically (despite my earlier comments), your play actually looks better knowing the results. He could rely on you to bet, so he didn't bet - you kept control of the pot. And you kept it small until his river-raise. A great example of pot control when you're behind and drawing (even if you didn't know you were behind).

I still think your all-in call was correct - the odds of him holding a PP to break you are fairly slim. I've seen a bluff here many times, and a weak 2 pair just as often. Bad luck, but keep on trucking and you'll get there.
