      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is BB with 7:heart: 7:diamond:

      [color:#cc0000]Hero bets $9[/color], [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 raises all-in $19.48[/color], Hero folds.

      My question is mostly with the river play. Its basically the worst card because it completes the straight and flush draw, so I didn't know which line was best. I went with bet/fold because then I'm not giving him a negative freeroll if he has a king or something like that. Is this right, or could a check/call or check/fold??

      Important is UTG stacksize.
      Imo it is mistake to bet/fold, when other player has a little more than potsize left, since you´re giving yourself way too good odds to fold.
      So I´d probably go bet/call. There is a small chance that he is bluffing or maybe shoving Kx (it is unlikely that he his straight on the river).
      When I shove, he´ll fold Kx, but call with set and straight.
      And if I check he would check behind with worse hands and mostly shove with better ones.
      Against fullstack bet/fold is good.
