      Looking a long time at this hand I think a c/r play could bring an A to bet.

      A straight is quite obviously at this river so any bet would make even bad players assume "ah every 7 makes a straight so he has one", even an A which holds TP can fold easily.

      A check maybe would get action from weaker hands. if not the result is the same.

      Second possibility would be a smaller bet, which looks like a block bet. $1 maybe or half pot. would maybe also Ax hands to call.

      To make it clear, I'm not playing yr limit, these where just my thoughts about this river bet with no demand to be right.

      But I have the feeling that the pot size bet made hands fold which you have beaten and which maybe would have stayed in play by smaller bets or a c/r play.

      Thanks for your advices.

      I guess my play's a bit weird sometimes. For example, I check the flop while having OESD + a pair and bet while having only OESD... ;)

      I would bet 2/3 pot on the flop and halfpot value bet on the river.
