      I didn't know what to do?
      I was thinking, what worse hand is calling my raise here and if I get reraised or shoved I have to fold! Or I'm insaine?

      Hi Zghrv,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Since we are the PFR and we checked back the flop he can have a lot of hands that are worse.

      Any Kx that he calls, 2p like KT, T8, etc. and he can also have sets, 22, TT, 88.

      I think that QJ or 76 are very unlikely and we only really lose to TT and a rare QJ.

      So not raising the river will lose us a lot of value and there's a good chance we don't get respect because of the flop check..

      And I don't think we can raise/fold given that worse sets/2p are definitely possible.
