      River: ($20.35) 7:diamond: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      This is pretty ugly. Because of his preflop action, I put him on either a low/middle PP or suited connectors - definetly not overpair. Since that was the range I put him on, I now see this as a pretty easy fold since that flop likely hit either of those holding.
      During the hand, I figured either he was drawing or he had hit his draw. I thought it was unlikely he had 7T or 75 but possible he hit a set. Anyway I put him on the draw and decided to push.

      Is the correct play to fold, although that seems really weak?

      I would have bet more preflop, to completely cut the implicit odds of your opponents with pocket pairs (around $1.4).

      On that flop, you have overpair, which is good. Your opponent bets big, as if he wanted to protect. He either had a set, two pairs, or TPTK.

      against two pairs you have some outs (5 for the turn + 8 for the river, not a lot but they are there)...
      There is still the possibility of him betting a scary flop

      If he had a straight, just bad luck but he made a complete stupid call preflop.

      I would have played it the same way, so nh for me.
