      I would have checked behind on the turn or fold to that reraise. Basically there's no hand that can check raise the turn that you can beat, unless the villain is a total fish and had something like AK.

      Edit: I actually wanted to say i would have checked behind on the turn, not the flop, obviously.

      I'd raise more on the flop. (~$2.90)

      Turn I'd check behind, that K is not only scary for you, but if your opponent wasn't on a flush draw, it is also scary for him, so IMO you'll only get called by better hands here (at least most of the time).

      After checking behind on the turn, I'd call any reasonable bet on the river, or bet myself if checked to.

      As played, on the turn, after being check/raised, you have the odds to call for a full house so you can't fold there, but since you're gonna be pot committed on the river if you just call, pushing is OK IMO.

      Hi EliasVeritas,
      Raise a little more on the flop for protection - about 3x villain's raise + half pot, or about $2.9 here. On the turn, again bet more for protection, ~3/4 pot (4.1$, give or take). I'd also call his shove because imo he will go broke with A :club: A, Q :club: Qx, and maybe also J :club: Jx. He might also shove AK, particularly with the ace of clubs, and of course sets, if he slowplays them on the flop.
      So, let's check our equity: (considering a pretty tight range of sets, overpairs w/ clubs, and AcKx)

      Board: 6c 7c 5d Kc
      	equity 	win 	tie 	      pots won 	pots tied	
      Hand 0: 	45.779%  	45.78% 	00.00% 	           423 	        0.00   { 5h5s }
      Hand 1: 	54.221%  	54.22% 	00.00% 	           501 	        0.00   { AcAd, AcAh, AcAs, KK, QcQd, QcQh, QcQs, JcJd, JcJh, JcJs, 77-66, AcKd, AcKh, AcKs }

      So as you see, we have 46% equity here, so have a clearly profitable call with these pot odds.
