Did hero overplay top pair?
Hero thought he would be blocking combos with 7's -
I would fold to CO's flop raise. You are behind too many hands and CO raised into 2 players. A lot of hands with 7's in V's range. A7s, K7s, 67s. Also, some better 8's in V's range.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Overplayed top pair with set blocker?
I would check call flop and check call turn. At micro cash I don't really like donking out multiways unless I flopped a monster and the preflop aggressor has a low Cbet %. As played I would like to see us fold turn. I don't like giving up on this flop because it's a wet dry heavy board and our opponent can be raising draws. Once you are raised on flop you really have no business betting the turn because your opponents range is uncapped and your range is capped at draws + TP type hands. As played fold turn you are way behind

folding pre very likely. Or could 3bet
I'm never donking on flop. There's no point of going overboard with terrible hands.
Before you start to play your hand ask yourself how is it going to fare in a 3 way flop OOP. And whether it is a 1 street/2street/3street value hand post.
What what ranges are you targeting to get value from by donking (or even make them fold)
