There's 120 in the pot when it gets to you. This is a borderline push, and 75 is not enough to limit the field. I make it 150.

Since you didn't, your line on the flop is fine.

I would raise more preflop. My general rule in level 1, with any hand I'd raise with, is 60 chips (4xBB) + 15 for each player that has limped. So my raise might be to something like 150 here... somewhere in the neighborhood of 120-180, anyway.

I stick with the same sort of system on level 2, except its 3xBB + 30 for each limper, assuming I've got the chips for it -- otherwise I just push.

On the flop I am CB'ing for 1/2 to 2/3 pot (likely somewhere around 300 chips) about 80% of the time whether I whiff or not. If someone pushes, I fold. If someone calls, I hit running A - K and beat their A - J.

If someone calls and by some miracle I don't improve on the turn, I probably shut down and get all pissed off.

150 and c-bet the flop against your lone caller, or 75 and get great pot odds to hit TPTK. Either way is fine. I go with the latter here.

You knew you wanted to isolate 1 or 2 players of the 7 players already in the pot when it got back to you. In this case you'll need to raise more than normal. $100 (pot $105) would have been a bit better. You are would be happy taking the antes at this point, so bet a bit bigger to get more folks out.

Your callers will have real hands though, so in early position you must decide before you raise what you will do if you get callers and miss the flop. Which is what happened here. If you planned to check/fold if you missed against 2+ callers, then you were affectively betting 1+:1 that you would hit the flop. Not good odds.

Your lay down was warranted after he bet. However, you could have easily got to that same result t75 cheaper by checking the BB. If you hit the flop, you will still get the t105 and whatever else you can make of it.

I check this before the flop.
