I'd probably bet less on the turn. Like .5x. You want to keep this pot small.

Other then that I think you played this alright. If he had a set or something and put you on a weak Ace, bravo to him. He bet pretty much the perfect amounts where you don't feel good about calling.

The hand feels real ugly, but I don't see where you could get away. I call the river.

I would have folded to the turn C/R.

These are tough spots for me, as I never know what to do.

I cant see him being on a bluff here, because if he were going to bluff at this pot, doing it on the flop when it got checked to him would be the logical play. That 7 doesnt really help anything, draw wise, so its not like he could have picked up a draw to semi bluff. I'd prolly just fold the turn as anything in his range has us beat and I dont think he is bluffing a high enough % of the time.

That river bet looks kind of scared to me, I dont think a bluff c/r shove would be bad, a flush draw is definitely in your range. He doesnt have a lot left behind tho, but hed still be getting a little worse than 2-1. But I dunno if hed be capable of folding 777 (which is his most logical holding), so id want a read before I did it. And Im not saying it would be a standard play or something, but its definitely something to think about in these spots.

Can anyone make a case for checking again OOP on the turn?

Definitely. You have top pair with a marginal kicker OOP. Keep the pot small and try to get to showdown as cheaply as possible.

The argument against this is that you lose value against someone with a J or lesser ace who would have called a small value bet. Also you may fold the best hand if someone makes a big bet after you check.
