Don't limp 77 from early position with that few chips. Your M is less than 7 so this is either a push or fold preflop, depending on how the table has been playing. With an M this low though I probably push here.

Postflop is fine but you shouldn't have been in that situation in the first place.

Easy preflop push....use the 10x BB rule. You have less than 10x BB, instapush.

I agree, you can't just call here. Your stack size is in poor shape and you either need to push or fold here. Personally I'm pushing. You need chips to place.
