      I would have pushed this one preflop.
      With 3+ limpers you can push all the hands from the SHC, because you'll be committed on every flop when you make a normal raise.

      After limping you only play for set value. Because when overcards show up (big chance when holding 77), you'll have to fold your hand because there are too many people that are able to hit (one of) the overcard(s).

      As played your floppush was good!

      Technically, you should raise $1,75 because you are in late position and no-one raised before you. You often win like this without confrontation (but I'm not sure if it is the case with so many limpers). I do like the idea of pushing DeKuip mentioned. I'm not sure about calling here though, judges say that it is bad for SSS, I can't prove it to you, lets wait for some judge :)

      thanks for the response, i was playing for set value since i wasn't sure i was getting fold equity with a raise so i tought about pushing but decided to limp instead. i guess next time i'll push.

      77's not such a bad hand, but you can do it with every pocket pair down 77's. Here it's marginal. You may, as stated, pushi it, althought calling is also not such a bad idea. Both I playable, I guess.
