      Hey Ezeras,

      I think the 77 is overplayed here.

      Preflop call is fine.

      Flop donk is ok, but I prefer to donkbet with something like 45 that has 5 outs to improve compared to 77 which only has 2 outs. Donking 77 for protection is ok however, and I think your sizing is good.

      Turn is actually a pretty good card. Even so, when you get 2 callers I think your best option is usually to give up on the hand. When UTG bets into 2 players I think best option is to check/fold.

      UTG bets large on the river, again I'd check/fold. It's true he might be bluffing once in a while, but his range is heavily weighted towards value given the line he took.
