      This hand was pretty wired... do u think that I should have called preflop?
      PostFlop action was hard... so... on the flop I think I couldn't have folded TPTK. His donk bet was could easy symbolizing set but I think he would have folded pocket 5 and 7 preflop...
      on the turn... he fired small bet... so he could build pot... but the question... if he had got set...would he have played it in this way?
      The river... I decided to call... because only QQ, KK , AA and 77 beat me... KK & AA was impossible, QQ I think also... so only one hand beats me...

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: You are still getting even the odds, so I don't mind.
      Postflop: Seems to be fine. If it even wasn't a 5 on river then it would be definitely harder. Because then it would be more likely even possible of holding a set and play this way. But now it made less likely him to have 55. I might even consider Calling. He wont have KK/AA in his rang anyways here. So only reasonable hands what we are beat from is 77 and that's likely it. 55 ain't that likely because of just one combo. And of course we need only like 26% equity on river and against any kind of range which consist of some Qx as well we are easily getting it.

      Best regards.
