      Hello!

      Preflop I thought I'm in middle position...so I called, anyway, I'm more interested whether the rest was played well. I was just giving up, when I hit my set on turn, so I bet. On the river I get raised and I still called...he could have delayed flush, but I was also thinking about something like AK with A of clubs (but now, that I'm thinking about it, I doubt he would raise it, probably just called). Should I fold?

      You have to value the river so I really like your river bet because even if he raises you, you can call him.
      When he raises it's a tough spot but I think call is ok, because he could do it with KQ or AK as u suggested.

      Thinking about his range JT could be in it too, but the board is a bit scary to try this. Qs are out because on that scary flop he would protect his hand against so many players.

      More often than not your set is good here so I would call it too.

      Calling river is fine, You have cca 2.5:1 odds and since he is preflop aggresor there is good chance he have KQ or even AK or AQ. without reads easy call imo.

      Hello,

      It's pretty close but since I see him doing such moves with 2pair type of hands also sometimes, depending on the player, with getting pretty good odds, I'd also Call on river.

      Best regards.
