      Even if you're right your equity isn't that great against anything with 77 and most flops will bring overcards to your pair, making it a pain to play against an aggressive opponent even in position. He made it huge as well, so you're getting a poor price to stick around.

      I'd probably just fold most of the time, shove over if I'm convinced he's full of shit very often, and barely ever call unless I feel comfortable felting the hand on very many flops, usually because villain is capable of squeezing any two cards and c-betting any flop.

      As played postflop obviously, nothing wrong with shoving over if you think he isn't bet/folding anything. That said since you believe he has a wide squeezing range and that's the reason you called preflop with 77, you should probably give him another shot at bluffing/improving on the turn since your hand is pretty much invulnerable.

      Hope it helps.
