      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:diamond: , A:heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0,20, 3 folds, SB calls $0,18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0,45) 9:heart: , 7:diamond: , 4:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,35, SB calls $0,35.

      Turn: ($1,15) K:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,80, SB calls $0,80.

      River: ($2,75) 7:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1,20, Hero calls $1,20.

      Villain is 71/20/2,1 and that last 7 on river just might be very well in his range, especially him c/c flop and turn and than leading out on river. So i guess call on river is for keeping me on a safe side, cuz pretty much everything else might leave me pot commited.

      Even if he leads blank river I am not raising there, hard to think of any hand that will call your raise and is behind

      He could fold some 7x to the turn bet and he could possibly have Kx that he'd be willing to call a raise with if he's the type to float the flop quite liberally, so I don't think he has 7x as often as you think.

      Still it's hard to quantify the value of value raising that river considering you most likely have to call a shove afterward. I actually think he's more likely to donk out on the river with hearts/9x/7x than the hypothetical Kx anyway, and those hands likely won't call a raise except for 7x than beats us. Just calling is fine, NH overall.

      Hope it helps.
