We are 7-handed and I am in the LJ w/ $315. I open to $7 w/ 78 of spades and get calls from the button and both blinds, all of whom have me covered.
The flop is 10c6d2s. Both blinds check. I decide to bet $25 into the $25 pot, and only the button calls, making the pot $74 after rake with $283 in the effective stacks.
The turn is Qh. I bet $35, the button thinks for a little while, and calls. The pot is now $144, w/ $248 in the effective stacks.
The river is the Ace of spades. Final board 10c6d2sQhAs. I bet $100.
