      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $62.65
      MP: $60.35 VP:19/PR:15/ AFq:55/Flop CBet 54%/Cbet Turn:67%
      CO: $19.83
      Hero (BTN): $73.10
      SB: $58.75
      BB: $50.00

      SB posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has 7:spade: 7:heart:

      fold, MP raises to $2.00, fold, Hero calls $2.00, fold, fold

      Flop: ($4.75, 2 players) K:diamond: 3:heart: K:heart:
      MP bets $2.50, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($9.75, 2 players) 4:diamond:
      MP bets $5.00, Hero calls $5.00

      River: ($19.75, 2 players) 6:heart:
      MP checks, Hero checks

      I think that calling the flop is ok.
      Calling the second berrel might be more questionnable but still I'm happy enough with it but with the idea of barreling the river if he checks, which I didn't do.
      I think the 6h is a great card completing my possible FD.
      Would 77-QQ fold to a bet on the river? Iam thinking of a pot bet kind of bet to look strong.

      Also can I pot bet the river is a non heart card come on the river?

      depends how often player would go to showdown. You have showdown value so you really don´t have to turn your hand into bluff and bet river yourself. If you bet then 2/3 pot would likely fold out his QQ-88.
      About flop and turn play. I would usually not happy calling him down so I think I´d rather turn my hand into bluff (or protect myself against draws :D ) and likely would raise turn
      I think he would likely fold there a lot of times QQ-88, b/c maybe with higher flushdraws (although being oop and consider that I might have boat he may easily b/f there QJhh, T9hh that has a lot of equity against your hand) and you don ´t have to face river barrel.
