      Although the hand turns to my favour after turn, i see some mistakes and want to analyse this hand. So.....
      On the flop: We could, and possibly should cbet here, but i didn't done that because my 2 pair are still pretty strong against drawing hands.
      On the turn: Should have bet more, around $0.80 as this bet is clearly for value.
      On the river: Now here i thought for a moment longer than you could expect at the first glance. I found out, that his play shows great strength and for one moment got really scared him having 77. Still, in the end i thought out, that there are some worse hands that call me, and that i can't really fold 3rd best hand here, esspecialy that there is almost no way i see him playing KK this way.

      What do you mean pretty strong against drawing hands, if he randomly binks gutshots/OESDs/FDs you're 4-outing so almost dead. If he doesn't, he'll be increasingly less likely to call valuebets as you near the river, since his hopes of drawing out will slowly disappear. Don't overthink it too much and just valuebet big on drawy boards against random limp/calling fish.

      Not much else to say except bet bigger on the turn and we'd better hope he has AA/22/6x instead of 77/KK on the river, since we can't fold that ever.

      Hope it helps.
