      Hi Im wondering about how to play overpairs in situations like the hand below.
      where you get a reraise at flop and I kinda knew he have a set but I still feel forced to call because of the overpair.



      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      UTG2:
      $5.48
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $6.07

      CO:

      BU:
      $12.45
      SB:
      $5.00


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K, K.
      UTG1 calls $0.05, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.30, 4 folds, UTG1 calls $0.25, MP2 calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($0.97) T, 8, 2 (3 players)
      UTG1 checks, MP2 bets $0.60, Hero calls $0.60, UTG1 raises to $1.50, MP2 folds, Hero calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($4.57) 3 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $3.00, Hero calls $3.00.

      River: ($10.57) 6 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $1.70, Hero calls $1.70.

      Final Pot: $13.97.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(K K).
      UTG1 shows three of a kind, eights(8 8).

      UTG1 wins with three of a kind, eights(8 8).

      Hello koreanlover,

      You can likely give it up right on flop as you decided to go for pot control, you are likely beat there in such a multiway pot after UTG1 decides to raise.

      Best regards.
