With T7s, I'm happy to see a free flop. If anyone bets preflop, then I have to fold.

I flop bottom pair with a flush draw and I absolutely must check the flop. With multiple opps in the pot, someone most likely has an A or J and is ahead of me. I want to be betting when I'm ahead, not when I'm behind. If anyone makes a sizable bet, then I need to see if I have the correct equity to call.. which I most likely will not and will have to fold.

On the turn against one opp, I will make a standard 1/2 pot value bet when I hit two pair and have a flush draw. When the opp raises, I'm going to call.

On the river, when I hit the flush, I'm leading again. I do not want to check and give the opp a chance to check behind if they're scared of the heart hitting the board.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
