Poker early hand

    Early in a sit and go, blinds at 15/30, stacks at around 1500. I have pocket 77. I am first to bet and limp in for 30. Another player raises to 150 and it is folded back to me. What is the correct play at this point. Call, raise or fold?

    I think the raise is hand like k-Q so I would call and hope to flop a set if paint comes watch out..Why did you limp with pocket pair??

    its best to call.
    If the guy also has a pocket pair, chances are you are beat. If the person has ak or aq.....the flop will tell you if you will fold.

    If you dont get a 7 on the flop, and there are 10.j,q,k, a.......on the flop.....and the guy aggressive bets....u fold.

    Look your first mistake was to limp in. Pocket 7s are strong enough to bet . Because you showed weakness you gave your opponent the rt to raise. He now started to put pressure on you. At this point a 3bet is in order. If he bets and 4bets you a fold is in order. If he calls you will now take over the betting more than likley he has a soft hand and you will be able to take it away from him.
