what range can he have with a line like that?
could it ever be a good call and in what situations?
I guess he could have a busted flush draw, maybe 55, maybe A5, maybe K5 but I'm not sure.

Hi Praydk,

I think we might be looking at Ax hands, 7x, FDs, PPs when they limp-call and lead flop.
When they check the turn, I think its unlikely for them to have a FD now since I expect them to bet small again with their draws, typical recreational line. Also I think their strong hands would be betting the turn as I don't expect limp-callers to be taking x/r lines too often with strong hands. So their turn check could look like a 7x, A-rag, and the occasional Kcxc. When they over bet the river this might look bluffy but I also think the river improved them to two pair with A5, 75 or a set of 55 or straight with 64. I think it's okay to get bluffed here because we have third pair and its hard for us to call anyways.
