        Preceding this hand, he played Aces very aggressively on a wet board, as well as raising with Q7o so he seemed rather unpredictable. I don't really know whether my decision was justified, I'd just like some help in interpreting the situation.

                  Hi Bjornic! With A7o from the button, I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With two limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 400. I don't want to raise less than this as I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. I flop bottom pair and when the three opps check to me, since I raised preflop, I will follow up with a c-bet on the flop. This will be my one shot to win the pot, as if I'm raised, I will fold and if I'm called, I'm not putting another chip into the pot unless my hand improves. The key here is the sizing of the bet as I want to size my post-flop bets based on the pot-size, number of opps and board texture. With 3 opps, I will bet 3/4 pot (510 chips). Once again, I do not want to bet less or I can be giving the opps the correct odds to try to outdraw me. When seat 1 shoves, I now need to muck, as they most likely have an overpair to mine. I want to be putting my chips in when I'm ahead in the hand, not when I'm behind. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
