      Villain: 52/9 AF 4,0
      On the river I thought that he could be betting as bluff since he didn't represent much except straight 67 maybe.

      Preflop: I like your isoraise against a VPIP 52 fish. Vs a tight limper I rather complete the blind.

      Turn: Hmmm your kicker is weak. I wouldn't mind a c/c. You should think about the hands you are actually getting value from. T7s/T9 comes to mind, maybe T6s? I don't think he has any worse TX. You lose to 67, you are still ahead of 78/68 which probably calls again with straightdraw+pair.

      I think QT may be closer to a bet, and KT would definitely be a bet since u beat more TX hands.

      River: Hmmm this is not great for us. Flop had no flush draws, but maybe he floats flop with something like KdQd and turned some equity. You now lose to all TX hands, you may lose to some random backdoor floats like QJ or 8s9s.

      I may consider calling a half pot bet, but I think you are beat by way too many hands. You need to win here like 32% of the time to justify a call. You should practice doing some equity calculations with something like pokerstove/equilator.

      Most likely hands in his range: 67/T8/89/AT/sets
      Possible bluffs: Can't think of too many here

      Well i am afraid of his bet sizing on the river just looking something like he has two pairs and it is a value bet something like T9 or T8 or even better T.

      Maybe i am leaning towards folding river or calling it in case of a smaller villains bet.

      Would Bet/fold river be overplayed?
