      The flop raise is very spewy here. I much prefer it with a gutshot, or at least something with some backdoor equity like Th9h. If you are raising 77 here, then you are probably raising most of your range here.

      We should only pick the best hands that we are unable to call with, to use as part of our bluff raising range.

      Anyway the Turn bet is just as bad. The Turn didn't change in any way which would either increase our equity in the hand, or strengthen our perceived range (in short, a scare card which is likelier to make him fold). Easy Give upo.

      River: Pairing cards suck the most for bluffing at. We just rep fewer value combos. It's less likely we now have AQ/QQ.

      In short, fold flop fold turn fold river.
