      I think it´s fine. Do you use pokerstove ? Try to put him on certain range, imo he is on 66,A6, or maybe even AQ. You are big underdog against a set ofc, but just add to his range A6 and see how it changes.

      Yeah :) and also make sure you know how to calculate your pot equity so you can analyze whether you made a correct call or not, it´s really useful and very easy formula :) . (just in case you wouldn´t know ;)

      Calculating your equity enables you to find out how often you need to be ahead in order to make profitable call :) . But ofc you can stick to odds and outs too.

      However if you were interested try video "Mathematical Concepts for NL Hold´em" series from hasenbraten :) was very useful to me, even though I had to watch it several times to understand :D

      Hello MikeF,

      Preflop: Usual raise would be 4xBB.
      Postflop: As well I guess I would do it even a bit bigger like $0,18. And otherwise I don't think that I can get away there, he may easily have a lot worse 2 pairs and even sometimes just TP, never know them.

      Best regards.
