      I think that calling the overpair on the flop is ok. I called the turn because of my recent play. On the previous hands i had showed a bit too much weakness than ussual. And the player looks somewhat solid from his stats, so i asumed, that he could be going for the 2nd barrel. I think you could translate his check on the river as giving up, but i don't think there is any sense to bet the river, because we still could get called by 88,99,TT IMO.

      In a vacuum I think the turn call is -ev, people just don't barrel in that spot often enough to warrant not folding 77. With history if you assume he's capable of noticing and exploiting the fact that you're folding a lot it's okay, but really for all you know he is 12-tabling and he doesn't even remember you :p

      Only thing you can do on the river is try and rep a backdoored flush or JJ by betting enough that he actually thinks about folding his 88-TT hands that probably make up the bulk on his range in that spot. Don't bet at all if you don't want to make it big.

      Hope it helps.
