      PF I decide to call the smallish raise, as I'm in position and have the implied odds for hitting a set. But the problem is that when I've made my set I may still be beat by AA or KK. So the question is call PF or fold? I guess as played I have to raise / call the flop.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Preflop: Seems to be fine while we even getting like 18:1.
      Postflop: Not much to do, I am as well going broke here. No way I am getting away. He may easily just have some TP type of hand here as well.

      Best regards.
