Oh when I started such situation confused me also. Let me explain to you what I did that helped he.
Poker is about making the best five cards.
So, everytime you confused you should ask yourself what is the best combination that I can do.
In your hand with two 6's you can make 77766. A fullhouse. Or 77776. Quads.
Quads is better hand than full house.
So, what is a better hand? 77776 or 7777King?
Your opponent can make a better hand. 7777K. Quads with a King kicker.
If the board was 7777Ace. None of you can make a better hand than what is already on the board, so you would split the pot.
Imagine that none of you hittted something on the board. Who would win? The one with the higher kicker.
You were just unlucky, if that 7 didnt come on the river your full house would have won.
no, at least not every time, as a 6 would have made it a tied pot and every K or J would make him a better full house.
So basically he had 2 outs to a tied pot and 7 outs to the winning hand.

I dont argue with that. I should have written that he 'could' win with his full house instead of 'would'.
Correct me if Im wrong, (beginner here) but how he is having on turn only 7 outs? I mean he can win it with every 2, 3, 4, 5 on the river. Thats like 16 outs. And if we take in mind the fact that neither have ace queen or nine, he could beat them too also. Did I miscalculated something?
