      Fold on the flop imo... you don't have the pot odds to call there I'm pretty sure... and you definitely don't have the implied odds either, it's a limped pot...

      I don't like the bet on the river either. You're only gonna get called by better hands there. 7x is most likely gonna flat call you & take another 20c from you... it's a bit pointless. Just let these hands go.

      IMO check/call all streets unless villain goes maniac on you.

      No need to bet/"block bet" on river.
      If villain raises your bet on the river you have to fold.
      Checking you can possible see the showdown for free.

      either c/f or lead out on the flop. You do not have odds to call and your imlies are not good since if you hit you will not get any value. I prefer donking on the flop.

      I c/f the river.
