      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 7:heart: , 7:spade:
      MP3 raises to $0,35, 2 folds, Hero calls $0,30, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0,80) 5:heart: , 5:diamond: , 4:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,5, MP3 raises to $1,72, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $3,02

      I called preflop for set value. On the flop my 77 is probably good, but I don't want to c/c because any overcards still have 30% equity against me and I'll end up calling a river value bet. And also I don't know what to do when I check on the turn and he bets...

      Was c/r a better option? Donkbet gets too many bluff raises I think, I did it because he looks like a donk and bluff raising donkbets is more of a TAG play.

      I think your play is fine
      You can c/r and then likely play for stacks, but if you think that 77 isn´t really that good then b/f is also fine
      Players usually just won´t really bluffraise with random hands and very often they have better hands than yours
