      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):
      $10.15
      BU:
      $11.02
      SB:
      $12.12
      BB:
      $10.14


      Preflop: Hero is CO with T, T.
      Hero raises to $0.40, BU calls $0.40, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) 8, 9, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.70, BU raises to $2.30, Hero calls $1.60.

      Turn: ($5.55) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $8.32(All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $5.55.

      Villain is 15/12/call open 5/AF 4.5/WTS 7/128 hands. Is my call on flop really bad ?? Looking now at the hand he is screaming that he has a set ,also his shove on turn looks like a desperate move to take value from an ACE.

      Hello alexgrapid,

      While he really is that aggressive then he may do that kind of raise with a lot of pairs/draws type of hands and I'd even prefer to 3bet it on flop rather than Call and face exactly such a spot on turn while he easily could take the A as scare card and even ship it as he did. But usually it's the safest to fold, although I wouldn't be even surprised to see that he is bluffing there or at least semi-bluffing. If he really had the Ax or whatsoever why is he shoving or trips?

      Best regards.
