      Hello p0rkus,

      The question is either he is capable of doing such raise on flop with Kx type of hand which he is scared of FD. It could be even possible to go all-in on flop but it ain't wrong to just take pot control line but if he is reasonable opponent then he will likely anyways bet the turn & river big enough that you will be all-in by river anyways and 7x can even be in his range. But I don't think that we can get away in this situation with our OP, he could easily be holding Kx type of hand here, so well played.

      Best regards.
