      Tough spot for me - bottom set, passive fish min-raises. Against 2 pair hands, 2 possible straights and better sets my equity sucks because if he's got 2 pair in this spot he probably must have 2 suited cards so not many combinations of these. He might be slowplaying aces but even then equity is poor..
      Probably we should much our set? If we hold 55 we do the same?

      VPIP: 39, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 1.4, WTSD 25, Hands: 181

      UTG ($45.30)
      MP ($20.91)
      Hero (CO) ($20.67)
      Button ($27.33)
      SB ($22.05)
      BB ($20.20)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3, 3
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.60, Button calls $0.60, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.50) 5, 3, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, Button calls $1

      Turn: ($3.50) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.80, Button raises $5.60, Hero raises $16.27 (All-In), Button calls $13.47

      River: ($41.64) 2 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $41.64

      Hello gonepoker,

      I guess I'd take 55 as the same way here. Therefore while he hasn't shown much of aggression I guess I like more often Calling the min-raise and reevaluating on further street. We still will be capable of getting his whole stack when we hit our FH. Those kind of opponents very often do such min-raises with strong hands and even if he doesn't have a very strong hand, he wont bet the river either very big when it gets ugly.

      Although it shouldn't be that big mistake, he might still come up time to time with hands like 56, maybe even 78 with managed to get a OESD on turn and maybe even a FD and so on, against we get pretty good equity if we add as well few made hands.

      Best regards.
