Is this a good tactic? Or will it not work in LHE?

Here is how i play it

Preflop middle position i get Ks 7s. Its called to me. I raise.
Floop come 3d 7c 7h
Its checked to me. I bet out. 4 people call me.
Turn comes 6h
Everyone checks to me. I check. The button checks.
River comes and is 10s everyone checks to me.
I check, the button bets out. 2 people call, and 1 folds.
I raise. Everyone calls..

I win the pot.

I use this tactic. And many times if i miss the flop and someone bets the turn, ill usually fold.

Meaning i rais pre flop, then bet out on the flop, the turn i check, someone bets. I fold.

Or is there a better way of doing this?

Yes, there is a better way to do it.

Bet your hand and don't try and be tricky and fancy at Limit Holdem

Giving a free card on the turn with a very drawy board like that against multiple opponents is just a really bad play.

LHE is about finding small edges and profiting from them. Raising K7s from MP is not a hand where you are ahead of lot. In MP, that's a fold. In LP, if enough people limp in, then it is OK to limp in.

The flop is a fantastic flop for you. Now your goal is to shovel as much money into the pot as possible. Letting the turn check around is a disaster. You also check the river, which could have been easily checked behind you and you collect a tiny pot in a hand where you should be collecting a nice big one. Bet the flop, bet the turn, bet the river. That will make you a larger profit on the long run. If you are going to be as loose as playing K7s (which I don't recommend), then you are probably bluffing at hands you miss, so you need to play fast on great flops since no one will believe you and call you down.

Trying to cram "small ball" into LHE is not understanding the "limit" part of LHE.

I was just thinking about it... Tried it a few times. It worked out for me 2 out of 3 time, but is not my normal type of play.

I usually play tight agressive. But i do change up one and a while.

Since it worked the 2 of 3 times, i figured i would ask around ... Got an answer,

To be honest there isn't a worse way.
Well I suppose open folding the river would put a cherry on top...
