I don't think you were getting the right odds to call on the flop. I'm pretty sure you had 1.7:1 odds and you are about 2.2:1 to hit your straight. Not to mention that 900 chips is a HUGE portion of your stack and that it's pretty big overbet it's a pretty clear fold to me on the flop.

And if you aren't going to fold you should have just shoved so you at least have some fold equity, but that's probably not the greatest idea.

^^^^ Im sure yoou are about 6 or 7:1 to hit your straight on the turn, so your getting nowhere near enough pot odds, just not even close. Villain would have had to bet 150 max for it to be a call. Also you are drawing to the idiot end of the straight, if a 7 hits the turn, you could be crushed by any 8, so you only have 4 clean straight outs, that being the 2. So you actually need odds of about 12:1 to call.

So fold flop

Agree, fold on the flop in this one. You've got a straight draw but not the pot odds, as the others have said.

chasing draw after the turn doesn't make sense to me. As the other players pointed out the odds were not there for you. Also I question giving up 900 chips at after the flop hit. I wouldn't invest more that 25% of my chips for a opened draw and none in a gutshot situation.

Better luck next time.

I have to agree with the other posts that state that the pot odds of calling on the flop was not a solid decision. Even the implied odds because it was such a huge part of your stack aren't there. Otherwise, congrats on your play to get so far.
