      The problem with such a call is that you'll be hoping for a very cheap showdown and you'll often have to laid your hand down, since villain could have a better kicker. I usually just let it go.

      As played, I go broke on this river.

      Hi Kimber88,

      It's ok to check preflop but more often I just shove preflop for 16bb ;) , mostly you get the deadmoney which should satisfy you since 77 is a marginal hand

      As played, you can't call on the Turn so just fold it there

      Lol my bad...

      Then both streets are fine played, if the river was different, I would call down the River
