      I think it depends on where his range is most weighted either a busted flush draw or a small pocket pair which you beat, checking will lose value against these small pockets that might call but will gain value if he bluffs missed draws.

      Going from your notes i like your line, i think it maximises your value.

      I like your line. There aren't so many pocket pairs that you beat.

      Let him ltry to bluff you on the river and moreover, if he's slowplaying something, you can probably get a cheaper showdown.
      Of course this wasn't the case though, but even for his stack I'm calling.
      It's even more likely that he's bluffing when he overbets like that.
      He know that you'll fold most of your range against that bet.

      Well I don't think I can get value from 77-TT with bet-bet-bet often and I think he'd 3bet or raise me on the flop with them, definitely.
