      Would raise to 4xBB preflop.

      Not sure what to do after a raise as most of time after being raised on flop were behind, either to AQ,AK,77, possibly AJ. Although i think he would 3-bet preflop with AK/AQ vs your range from SB. So he probs has Ax or 77 possibly.

      Like checking turn for pot control after all we only have top pair, decent kicker, and id prob check river aswell .:)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, obviously it's possible line, although if he is rather loose-passive player then rather not. :P What's your plan if he bets turn again? :)

      Also would he ever Check behind on turn and then bluff the river? :P

      Best Regards.
