      Hi Gonchan,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Postflop: As played I think we should call the river. Villain hardly ever has a better hand because in CO vs BTN, 4 handed we can expect at least JJ+ to 3-bet, if not TT+ which means that there's only one (at most two) overpairs that beat us.

      We can also expect most 7x to try and raise the turn for value and pretty much every draw except 5x missed the river. You only need to be good 25% of the time.

      Now, going back to the turn, I think we may have more value in checking to let him bet his floats/draws/etc and I would look at how often he bets versus a missed cbet.
