On the button I’m dealt AdKc. UTG, MP, and CO all limp, and I raise to $5. Everyone but BB calls.
Flop comes 7c8s3s and checks around to me. I bet $5, SB calls, and everyone else folds.
Turn is 5c. SB checks and I check back.
River comes 10s. SB checks. I bet $10, and he raises to $15. I take a second to think about it and re-raise to $30.
