      One of the classical situation where you dont really know what to do with your AA or KK... On the turn, I usually rely on stats and previous observations to make the decision to push or fold. Obviously fold against TAGs and push against LAGs. However, if you do not have any information at all its often tough!

      However, since your getting almost 3 to 1 odds I dont think you can fold here. At NL50 there are enough players who make such plays with hands you can beat and if he has a set, straight or random two pair so be it, nh.

      P.S. Of course things would be different on higher levels and with significantly deeper remaining stacks

      It really is a tough one , but Vilain limp/called pf, miniraised flop and bet 1/2pot on turn. He wanted you to call and it is very possible he played small pp and hit.
      It is borderline but imo fold turn

      I agree that a set is very possible but the 3 to 1 odds are just too tempting for me.

      A set is possible, but also MP3 can be making this move with a draw, or air, or A9 or some other pair, seeing as you often miss this flop.

      I think that c/rai on the turn is the right principle here. Once he bets the turn, he can't fold whether he has the better hand or not, since his odds are just too good.

      It is unfortunate that the only draw on the board, 78, just turned into a straight. If the turn was a total blank, you could c/rai without thinking. As it stands, you get some information at least.

      well played. Villain may bluff or have TP/Overpair etc. I'd also get it in and I like your c/r.
