      I think it's fine, villain looks tight so far so if you 3bet your 77 SB vs MP it's almost a bluff, as he will likely dump anything but AK/TT+ and you'll be crushed whether he 4bets or you get to see a flop as a big underdog. At least calling will give you a chance to see the flop and crack his hand.

      On the flop if i'm donking i'm just potting it, hard to say whether check/raising is better without any postflop read. He probably won't c-bet air, the question is rather whether he'll raise a donkbet with an overpair or not. Either line is okay.

      On the turn it's time for the sick feeling that we've just been 2-outed or he slowplayed a flush, as i very much doubt he'd raise there even with something like AK with a diamond and he would have raised 44 on the flop. That being said it's really hard to give credit to a relative unknown for AA, maybe he does sometimes go nuts with AdKx, your only play is likely to shove and deal with the cooler if he shows AA or a slowplayed flush.

      Hope it helps.
