      Was this a crying call or just one I should make? I was fairly certain he has me beat here with AQ or A7, or even a set

      Not so many hands in hes raising range that you beat.
      We represent our hand right, TPTK , and hes raise is more or less 2 pair(AQ) or 77, so I think folding here is mandatory.

      Wait to see veriz tho.

      I think he is such a fish. Aganst him and his stack size this is call.

      why do you bet so little on flop?? two opponents, FD and GS possible, I'd say bet ~2$ and then it's more or less standard call against his stack

      Against this stack size I think we have to call, especially since we have backdoor flush draw, backdoor straight draw and 3 outs vs any other two pair hand. I don't think he has 77 very often, much more likely to have QQ there imo.

      With his stack size being so low we can assume he's a fish and will probably stack off here with AJ or a flushdraw (Although he's more likely to play the flush draw passively).

      I also agree with foolboydesire that you should definitely make it a bigger cbet on the flop :)
