      BU wins with a straight, jack high (9d 7d)


      I think preflop is fine, and my raise on the flop is fine. But when two more guys go all-in after my raise, can I ever fold middle set here?

      isn't this exactly what you want when you hit a set?
      turn and river probably screwed you, but that's poker!

      Edit: ooh! painfull, you're even more unlucky than I am!

      Normally yes, delighted to hit a set and get it in.

      But in this case, look at SB who is a 10/3/1 nit who called presumably to setmine preflop. He sees me make a big raise, another guy call all-in, and yet SB still re-raises all-in. Easy in hindsight, but hasn't SB got a set of J every time here? I can't see any other hand that makes sense for him.

      - no, just a cooler, you have put in too much money to fold that spot middle set. You´re mostly quite good shape and it is just cooler if you are against JJ

      Hello member001,

      The thing ain't like he only has there JJ but as well he may play this way his 88 or whatsoever and while you already have more than 1/2 of your stack in your Call is pretty standard with all the dead money in play. There is no way I am getting away from here.

      Only thing to do is add to full stack. :)

      Best regards.
