      Hello Belgas,

      Just fold it on flop, you went for set mining preflop so play it accordingly, you don't have to overplay NL2 opponents, just play solid game and make your earnings. Also we are playing against unknown, what should we take the variance and risk with our money, since we never know with what does the opponent continue.

      Best regards.
