Fold 77 to the UTG raise , his hand range should be something like 99+,AQ+,AJs+. and there's no need of betting OTT, short stack is not folding anything that he called OTF with. check/fold. I play this hand for open shove with 10bb's and open raise fold with 12bb+. but you have there really good stack.

I suggest checking your stack size again.

Hi sapines1001

I think there are reasons for both calling preflop and folding preflop but ultimately I would prefer to fold as there are a few stack sizes behind us that are likely to go all in/call in position and 77 doesn't play very well versus a typical villains UTG range.

If villain is a maniac that is likely to give you his entire stack if you hit a set then I think we can justify calling with the sevens but we ought to continue cautiously post flop.

If we're in late position then calling with sevens is fine when your this deep but from the position your at it's just a fold for me.

As played, betting flop and turn is fine.villain 2 has only a little more than a pot sized bet on the flop so it's standard to get it in with him on the turn especially when our hand could indeed be good like it could be here. Villain 2 may have smaller pairs/overs/flush draws.

Cheers, Chris.
