      Villain appeared to be LAG, based on a few hands. I assume I should have folded against a TAG on the flop, but I could imagine being ahead against a LAG, and the bets were not terribly high. Anyway, I am not sure how to handle these situations...

      Hello feketepok,

      As you didn't hit set on flop I'd just fold it right there, even if the guy bets only $0.02, you have to consider that there are 2 threes what could help you and one of them will complete a flush, which would put us into trouble. Otherwise as you Called then I am never going to Call the raise, just fold it right there. Turn definitely Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
