Hi Pr0teus,

There's not much I like about how this hand was played tbh. First of all no reads are given, but even against 5 random unknowns, I think we should be folding 97s preflop from UTG+1 vs. an UTG 3x open raise. This hand plays well deeper stacked, with reads, in position heads up, or multi-way for cheap. We have none of this defined yet so we're entering the pot not really having a solid strategy for it being profitable.

On the flop with 2 pair on a wet board, I would generally raise right here rather than flat.

On the river, the pot contains about $5 and you only have $2.35 left, I would have shoved for value with a full house on a wet board where the river card has brought both the flush draw and straight draws home. Anyone who was chasing a flush or made a straight will never fold now, if they have a bigger hand, so be it. I don't think you can fold on a river card that completes so many draws when you can beat both flushes and straights and the pot is huge relative to the remaining stacks. At least, I'm sure I would have gone broke on this hand if I saw the flop, but I wouldn't have seen the flop to begin with.
