      Co shoving the turn, I'd put him on 2Pair, higher sets, KQ (straight) or a flush. So my bottom set doesn't do that good against his range. As played I think I have to call, but should I have done anything different earlier on?

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      You have to raise it bigger on flop ~$1,20 would be my raise. And otherwise not much to do, I am as well going broke. He may easily have 2pairs/pair+draw or whatsoever hand in his range.

      Best regards.
