      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, Hero ?

      PF: Standard raise for value/protection.

      F: Bet as a bluff in order to get Qx, 7x, lower PP and maybe some weak Ax to fold.

      T: When Villain calls, he's likely on a weak Ax or draw of some sort since I think he'd probably raise 77, AQ+ for protection against draws. I think I can profitably bluff this range and get the weak Ax hands to fold as I look very strong firing a second barrel.

      R: I assume that I must be beat and check, hoping for a free showdown. Villain bet's pot so he's either got Qx or a bluff since it is quite polarising and he would checked other made hands for a free showdown himself. I think it's unlikely he has Qx in his range (QcKc) maybe being the only exception but he might raise that on the flop also, so I would attempt to Hero call with King-high.

      Not sure how much I like your turn barrel, since if he called once he would likely call again. Against that big bet I would rather fold, since you should see more often Qx than missed flushdraw (also players would generally bet less if they are bluffing)

      best regards,
