2 pair vs set  0   
So, this hand has been nagging at me for the past few days... actually made me relog onto here, to check what you'd say.

I've been doing well in poker, but f**k ...

I was playing a 50/1, 6 seat game, on BB, no raises. I played 72 off, flop came q72 off. I bet, another one raises, I go all in. With the info you have now, what would you do?

Hands turn, and the dude flopped a set of 7's.

Was it a bad call, or just bad luck?

i need stacks to say more about this hand.
But i would 4bet/fold not 4bet shove.
U have to have in mind he can have a lot of hands that beats u and after ur 4bet he shoves only better then ur 2 pair.

just my 2 cent.

72 off-suit is literally the worst hand in hold'em, you shouldnt start b.etting/raise with them under any scenario (if you flop 777 with it then you are lucky indeed, but any other occasion try to avoid them like a nuclear crash site).
Definitely not recommended to shove with it - its an ultimate sh*tty hand, even on a favorable board.

It happens all the time and if i were in your shoes I would opt to go all in against a set on the flop, i will just hope that it is bottom set, because with two pairs , i would get the chance to go to an improved full house or if it is a suited hand I still have a chance to get the flush i needs to beat him. Anyway I would stack off daily against bottom set, so nicely played and good luck in your poker play at the tables mate!

Nobody made a negative comment, and playing out 72o even on a favorable board is usually -EV in my book.

72 is a monster. if you flop 772, thats it Heart

So basicaly you flop the worst 2 pairs, you beat nothing (except for some weirdly slowplayed overpairs) what your opponent would go all in on the flop. There are no draws your opponent could be semibluffing with. Leading is ok, but against an reasonable opponent when he shows such agression, it is a clear fold. (btw he played it too agresively imo)

only play 72 if you have a 72 rule Tongue

Since there were no raises it's nothing wrong if you played 72 lol

But after you saw the flop, i would have maybe call a raise but i would never go all in with since a set was in the range of the villain considering that he didn't raised preflop but now bets.

When you flop so huge in an unraised pot you must think that your hand is good nearly all the time. You could never put him on a pocket pair when the pre flop action was non existent. You played the hand perfectly acceptable in my opinion and just got unlucky

Not always true, not alot of people reraise 77 or 22. Low limits on ps they do alot, but tbh imo it has no value playing small pp over aggresive unless you're smallstacked. Thats my view in mtt
