      I probably misclicked and made minraise instead of 5xbet amount. But should I?

      Preflop: Since we have position we can isolate the limpers. However I would never limp behind this hand.
      If you aren't comfortable raising then just fold.

      Flop: The bigger raise for value/protection is fine. Min raise just gives them too good odds to stay in and chase their draws.

      We do have a weaker Qx so there are better hands that can call but also enough worse.

      Turn: Since the 7 brings yet another draw and helps 67 for a pair I would not simply call this. Look at what they bet and what we allow them to do (see a cheap river with draws).

      So raise it up again for pure value.

      River: Once so many draws complete we have to fold.
