      Hello newsat,

      Preflop: Should be fine to set mine here for the given odds, but sometimes I'd even prefer to fold it, for the reason that we are set mining for a pretty small set and also UTG1 could easily consider of 4betting us.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd actually just fold it on flop, unless you know that you are getting from him like more ~$3, otherwise I guess you can likely go broke there when you did hit what you wanted with our plan on turn.

      Best regards.
