    Don't raise that flop. You don't have enough strong hands to raise that flop. He has a lot more strong hands than you.

    It's even worse for us because there aren't many strong draws on that board. So with a raise we are saying we have 77 or a gutshot.
    Too many gutshot draws compared to 77 or a7s.

    He can play back against that range quite well.

    Fold the river. I would have just call call call or call call raise fold on the river.

    #1 he isn't bluffing now.
    #2 he can have AK or A7 which out numbers the sets. He can easily XR the turn with AK
    #3 he raised from MP not EP which expands his range
    #4 you raised the flop with a set. Something bad players don't do. They slowplay it to the turn. So in his eyes your raise looks like AQ. You gotta remember players either become very passive vs this kind of players are very aggressive with TP hands. They don't generally understand that just calling with good or better hands is the better play.

    I am not folding a set here. If you raised the turn and got 3b then I would be concerned.

    Way likely
    AK (9 combos)
    AA+KK (6 combos)

    A7s (1 combo)
    A7o (3 combos)

    Now I do agree with just calling down.

    Based on my experience with UK cash games I would fold river based on this line.

    I like the flop raise fwiw
