That were a lot of Sklansky bucks for you here.
Losing to runner runner stuff is always hard to accept. But nice call from that guy with A7. People are getting their chips in on that flop like there is no tomorrow, so top pair no kicker had to be good. Confused

The call with the AK was marginal at best... the A7 was just plain crazy...

Oh well, still up $10 from that little 2,000 hand session. Little break now, then back to it Cool

Your pre-flop play UTG seems a bit too loose. Out of position, with 3 players acting after you, all you can hope for is to flop a set (which you did).
With 3 players behind you, 2 of which already indicating good hands, by 3-betting, and calling that 3-bet, and one that may call/raise or push as well, you are bound to be dominated.

Personally I like to limp those small PP hands UTG (excuse the 4-letter word), but committed to see the flop, by calling a 3 BB or 4 BB opening bet. I want to see the flop a cheap as possible, and if I open myself, I will likely face a 3-bet, where otherwise, I just call a 3 BB opening bet.

As played, I likely fold, after one player 3-bet, and another calling, and one still to act, all of them having position on you.

I'm not exactly sure if my way is better, but I like to keep the pot small, when my hand is small, especially because when you do hit the set, you can still get called often when you've made your big hand, at these levels (just look at that A7 guy, for example...).

Edit: it just occurred to me that this might be a Zoom table. I have no clue about Zoom, so that might change things...

It was Zoom, yeah...

Players 3-bet with junk a lot of the time, so you really need to be committed to call after making an initial raise and see how the flop looks.

My rules for Zoom are: Raise often... 3-bet often... only 4-bet with Kings or Aces... never CALL a 4-bet (unless it's all in) push Aces or Kings, fold everything else.

Reasoning being - players often raise marginal hands, but will lay down say KQ to a 3-bet, so while players raising range is very wide, the calling/raising 3-bet range is very narrow.

Hey mate this is going to happen from time to time and you rad is good , i once had AK and gone in with top pair and knew he had thrash hands and was behind but he still managed to out match me on the river thanks to luck but i know my read was good as he showed bad cards on his hands. Anyway good luck mate hope you get more luck at the tables and always goes all in when you are ahead. Cheers mate have a nice day and a blast!

However no money involved was a freeroll. Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile Smile

bad beat indeed
but knowing you from your posts , i don't think that pot really made any difference in your bankroll
apparently you couldn't stay away from the cash tables
but i suggest you move to higher blinds , i can see better players folding their AK to a shove there
but in micro even A7 called Aww crap!
Wish you the best luck in your journey at the tables , off the tables and most importantly under the tables Big Smile
Cheers mate have a nice day and a blast!
