Never look back. We could all fill the halls of the Library of Congress with folded winning hands. Last night, I went on a card rush of 7 winning hands in a row. Folded all of em preflop.

With the raise and reraise (all in) behind you, I think this was an easy fold PREFLOP. The allin range could be wide, but the original raiser could have a good hand, and is yet to act. By just calling, he could've came over the top and put you in a squeeze.
And if you're playing the sevens for set value, you just lost that with the action preflop. I dunno, looked like a clear fold- you'd only invested 200, but instead put in a quarter of your stack on 1 out of 7 odds.

Yeah crancko, I'd fold this PF with that raise and reraise.

Thanks guys. You know, you can read all you want, but sometimes you feel a right git seeing what flopped. Its reasurring to have backup experts! Ended up early, won about 1.90 or so. Goes towards my "take-the-punishment-rebuild-stack-on-your-own" plan.

It's either fold preflop or shove to isolate. Calling is the worst option here. what do you do if you call and the player after you shoves? If you are going to call then you should push first for the fold equity. If you are going to fold to another push then you shouldn't call in the first place for that many chips.

It's really a fold here but if you are going to play after the player goes all-in then you need to push all in youself.
