      Hey,

      If you think your opponent is good, I would consider folding 77 vs a tight-ish MP range preflop because we never do well postflop. It's a tight preflop fold but I am strictly referring to good and rather tight opponents.

      Once you call you assume you will not be too worried about just one overcard so you can definitely call the small cbet. What I found is that people barrel turn reasonably often and with your gutshot + trips outs you can call again since the 4s brought gutters for A high, pair + draw for 5xs, 65, flushdraw for a lot of suited broadways so his barreling frequency should be reasonably high with enough worse hands.

      River however completes some bluffs, he still vbets made hands from the turn so I would fold. I haven't found people to bluff here often enough.

      so flop, turn play was not too bad?

      Flop and turn was fine imo. Turn brings the draws that can barrel while river completes some and also villain is less likely to bluff. People simply play more honest on later streets.
