      Hello p0rkus,

      Nah, I'd also fold there since we would be in so big pot and a lot of opponents could easily Call there for set value and for example if we bet out on such board as it's on flop and you get shoved there, you will be hard time Calling it since he can do it easily with set. Well played! Better to avoid such situations where you are trying to play just for 1pair.

      Best regards.
