      Hello! I called the CO from the BU with 55 and hit the set on the flop. Since the board was pretty harmless, I decided to just call the flop and turn and push on the river. But then the worst possible card for that plan came up.. I just called the river, but quess I shouldn't.

      CO's stats: 17/9/100/5,5/40/69 (VPIP/PFR/CB/Agg/WTSD/Hands)


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Final Pot: $11.42.
      Results follow:

      Hello Alleen86,

      I guess I am just raising it right on turn, since it seems that he is capable of Calling our raise. But as well your play is totally fine, even sometimes better. And of course that's true that the K made our hand very weak, although I guess if he even had there a stronger hand like Kx then I am more often inclined to think that he is as well betting a lot more therefore while he is giving that great odds, I guess it's fine to Call.

      Best regards.
