      CO: $2.61 (52.2 bb)
      BTN: $11.28 (225.6 bb)

      Hero bets $1.15, UTG folds, CO calls $1.15

      River: ($4.60) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.71 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.71

      $6.02 pot ($0.30 rake)
      Final Board: A 2 J 3 6
      CO showed T Q and lost (-$2.61 net)
      Hero mucked 7 7 and won $5.72 ($3.11 net)

      I had a read on the initial raiser as he was open raising from EP 67% of the times, caller had a high VPIP and I thought it was a good spot to squeeze with my 77. Now that I review the hand I feel my raise it should have been bigger. Maybe 0.90 to 1.00?

      Flop goes check check and I feel I can go for a late Cbet on the turn.

      Second villain folds and on that spot I gave up.

      Problem is I wasnt paying close attention to the pot and his stack so when he shoved I felt I had to call given the check check check on the flop and the price I was getting.

      don't squeeze 77. It plays poorly in 3b pots (in 3b pots we want to flop Top pair and stack off), and plays well in a single-raised pot (set-mining)

      If you want to bet, just bet the Flop. I don't like making delayed cbets at lower limits in 3way pots. People just assume you don't have an Ace and call you down lighter on the Turn or River.
