      Hey Cuvash,

      Open-raise is borderline. It's fine to fold preflop. If there are fish in the blinds, or tight players in position on you then opening is fine. As standard I recommend you fold preflop.

      Cbet flop is fine, especially if villain has a low Ftcbet.

      Barreling the turn for value is likely going to be too thin because of your kicker. Check/call might be an ok line to take if villain has a low Ftcbet flop: likes to float flops + bluff turns, but this is a little less when opponent is in MP. I'd either check/call or check/fold depending on the opponent.

      River value bet might be ok from stuff like AQ, but it looks pretty scary when you bet turn + river on 4-to-straight board. I recommend you bet the river smaller here if you want to extract value, maybe $2 or so.

      So that means that i can bet river as value bet even with my low kicker. If he have low cbet% fold and high turn bluff %?

      Did you realise you spiked 2 pair on the river? If you didn't hit a 7 you can never value bet river, you'd be turning your hand into a bluff.
