      I prefer taking my free showdown on the river. Problem thin valuebetting is that he might not call you down with 77 and he more often has there 88-TT (and now turns out he may also have JJ :) )
      You can consider turning your hand into bluff and bet 2$ to get fold his medium higher pp-s, but until you´re not sure player can fold these and having showdown value I´d just take my free showdown.
