      that a tricky one.
      But I guess if a passive guy raises you on the river with that board, your set is toast.
      You could go for b/f with a passive guy and c/c with an aggressive villain.
      If you can't b/f a set, then it is c/c even if you see him having 8x or a backdoorflush like always.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,

      I'm raising bigger preflop, 77 stands to be the best hand but won't like many flops and we don't know yet if that guy is a limp/calling machine, so taking it down without seeing a flop by pumping up the price sounds good to me.

      On the flop he doesn't know you you don't know him, you can likely get away with a smaller c-bet. c/f turn is fine. As for the river you have to bet it strong to get value, that guy could be checking behind hands as strong as Kx if he's passive enough.

      When he raises so big you're often toast to 8x/backdoor flushes since he looks passive. But he's almost unknown, your line looks funky, he could have two pairs or he could be bluffing a tiny percentage of the time too. You're getting 2:1 on a call, it's pretty marginal imo. If he had made it a bit smaller i'd have called, but i really think the 4.5x raise is very strong there so i think i'm folding on a 3-flush 4-straight board.

      Hope it helps.
