      Hello BigAl123456,

      You are saying never fold on flop & turn to such small bet and why is that so? Give the reason. I'd say I'd just fold on flop the reason that we ain't getting correct odds to set-mine there also when we hit we will never know that we will get his stack + he ain't fully stacked either. Ain't worth calling on flop, rather just fold since we didn't hit.

      Best regards.

      Would it be fair to assume that CO's reraise probably means we're way behind already?

      I'd fold the sevens after the reraise for sure as I don't want to go to a gunfight with a bread knife.

      Set mining against one opponent gives bad odds anyway.

      The concept of "never this" or "never that" is something I'd re-evaluate. Everything is situational, as far as I can tell. Phil Hellmuth was saying that he and Matusow had had a discussion for months on whether to fold AA on the bubble to a reraise, and only discarded the idea after a long while.

      because the bets are so small compaired to the size of the pot. I meen I can never fold to the Min Raise its not even double my raise.
