      Villain is 76/16 idiot

      I feel like I might as well join in the fun here since there's a minraise and call, I'm in position and if I hit the straight I can get a lot of value. I don't mind seeing a cheap flop here.

      The flop is pretty useless, but everyone checks. Fine by me. Villain raises the turn, but around 1/3rd I'm not sure what to think. He's obviously not thinking hard enough to induce bluffs so I figure maybe he has a ten and is scared of the flush, or maybe he now has a backdoor flushdraw. Either way, I think my odds are okayish since the guy is pretty stupid.

      Hitting two pair on the river is pretty lucky but it also completes his flushdraw. I guess he doesn't have that since he bets so small. I'm still a bit scared of it so just call his tiny bet.

      Maybe the call on the turn is a bit borderline?

      Hi Knyght,

      Preflop: similar to your Q4s hand we call yet another marginal hand. Simply fold this preflop, it's garbage for the most part.

      As played I'd still fold my turn. My 7x is not the greatest and I'll have a hard time on most rivers.
