      I was close to folding this river, I know I only really beat a bluff but it was hard to put him on the 6x after he checked the turn in position.

      Known players:

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.102 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J:heart: , 7:club:
      MP3 calls $0.05, CO calls $0.05, BU calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) 7:spade: , 5:club: , 4:diamond: (5 players)
      Hero bets $0.2, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BU folds.

      Turn: ($0.85) 3:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO checks.

      River: ($0.85) 2:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO bets $0.29, Hero calls $0.29, MP3 folds.

      Final Pot: $1.43

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows a straight, seven high (Ac 6h)
      Hero shows (Jh 7c)

      CO wins with a straight, seven high (Ac 6h)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Rather don't complete such hands. They way too often put yourself into marginal spots.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, there are just so many hands what beat you. Any Ax beats you, any 6x beats you, couple of 2pair combos are possible, some pair+draw combos did complete. So I'd just Check/Fold it, even vs such a bet size. :)

      Best Regards.
