      Lets see our options.. We can:

      Fold. This is way too weak since our 77 is often good on this board.

      Raise: If we raise here, we usually fold out most worse hands except the flushdraw. Also if we raise and he calls, we suddenly find ourselves in a big pot with just about no clue what our opponent has. If I had something like AQ here, I would definately raise as a bluff. But 77 is too good to turn into a bluff I think

      Call: Yeah, so basically I like calling :P It keeps random bluffs as well as all the weaker (and stronger of course) hands in. We lose initiative and don't really know where we're at, but then again, neither do we know that if we raise.

      Hope you follow my reasoning.

      My plan is to call down these small bets all way to river unless there are 2 overcards like A and Q or the flush comes in and he bets big.
