      Hard to say without knowing if that guy cares about being deepstacked or not, meaning whether he's prone to pot controlling top pair hands if given the choice. There is certainly merit to just donking out there for 3 streets, discarding the value we get from bluff c-bets to ensure we force decent hands to call more bets instead of checking back.

      As played when he checks behind the flop I'd donk out $2, as played when he raises the turn it looks kinda tricky/strong considering he should have bet more of his air hands on the flop and there aren't any draws he could have now. Since he could still just be playing 22/AK/AA horribly calling down is mandatory, you can probably just 3bet the turn small not to scare him too much and go broke also, making a note on whatever he shows and treat KK/77 as a cooler.

      Hope it helps.
