      Hey A,

      I think you should not limp preflop. Raise or fold. 77 is strong enough to raise there imo.

      As played, I prefer check/raising the flop and trying to get it in. Ax never folds, TT-KK has doubts about folding so you only make him fold air. When he bets pot size though, he is unlikely to have air imo.
