      Hand 1 and 2 are almost similair.
      I decided that he wasn't holding a 7 because of his call to my raise and chances of him holding a K is minimal against 1 opponent and him checking it to me on the flop.

      Position:
      Stack
      UTG+1:

      First hand is played correct, you have an easy shove here on the flop since you're heads up.

      But second one: 77 from middle position means a fold and not a limp, right? At least it did when I looked at shc last time... Openlimping from middle position isn't in fact profitable even with big stack behind. I strongly suggest not to limp here.

      Can I limp middle pockets from MP and low pockets from LP for set value or is it -EV in the long run?

      1st Hand: Would have done the same.
      2nd Hand: Wouldn't even limp in with 77 (SHC)

      It's totally exploitable. You can watch few last Thorsten77's videos, he explains it well.

      Limping from ep is wrong, because you have to fold to a raise which is very likely to happen.
      Limping from mp is wrong, because you have to fold to a raise which is likely to happen. (it's ok if there are few limpers before you)
      Limping from lp is ok if there are limpers in the pot.

      But don't forget to fold to any raise and do not call anything bigger than one big blind.

      And it's exploitable, so I don't really like it... but well, it's playable the way I explained it.
