      U can't really call it w/o Solid reads on villain. He called 2 streets and lead/shove river. might be a bluff but is it really worth it to call it ? You'll make worste mistake by calling it then him bluffing. WP Ev +

      Bet much larger on the turn for protection. 6$ is correct imo, I'd like 6.5$ :)
      There are so much draws in there you have to make them pay.

      As for the river, I think you can fold. A set could slowplay that way, as well as hands like 76 or 77, and sometimes 43 will be here as well.

      If it is a bluff, then it's well played by your opponent because you can't catch it w/ TPTK or overpair. You could have limited this by betting bigger on the turn, letting him less fold equity on the river (and so bluffs will be less likely).

      At least this is my opinion about it, I can be wrong here, those laydowns are allways strange spots for neophytes like us :D

      he is not bluffing there, so it should be fold. Consider how drawy is board I´d prefer betting turn 6$
