      Hero wins with a pair of sevens (Qs 7h)

      Preflop is standard. I am not loose enough to play OOP with such a bad hand against fishes I don't know well.

      On the flop I decided to call since the board is scary and he may like to steal it sometimes with either a diamond or a pair in it. I don't think worst hands will call me if I raise though, and I don't want to turn my TP with better kicker than most of their hands (except A7 and (K7)).
      The turn is still scary, however only the 4 got in. So if I though I had the best hand on the flop I have to call here I supposed.

      I see no value on the river, since the ace on the board will make fold a lot of 7 imo, so I check behind.

      Calling station style or correct defense of TP with medium kicker?

      I would played the same way, since Sb leading range are worse hands than your tp with good kicker+ he can always have there some kind of draw
      River is easy check behind, since I´m not sure he would call there worse hands. And he may always c/c smt like A high flushdraw
