      if i knew he had AA i would raise, i never thought he had AA due to the weak plays by him. Only reason i didn't raise was fear of JQ.

      I'm not a big fan of 3betting preflop with 77 there but I guess it's just a matter of style. As played I definately raise river with second nuts (I guess he's not having J7 there) ad hope he calls with a set, two pair or anything.
