      34/8/2 51 hand

      Flop and turn I think is ok, I have a pair and fkushdraw, which could turn into set, two pair.

      Don't know is it worth to call the river. This player is pasive, he should definitely have ace or better. This should be a fold I think.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      First of all you can't turn your hand into set. Only possible way to turn your hand into set is PP which hits a same card. You can hit trips.

      But overall I'd say if he is really going to showdowns a lot and you expect to have some implied odds there and will get on river ~$4,10 if you hit your flush then you can Call.

      But why I would advice rather to fold the turn is that you basically just putting yourself into leveling spots as you did in this spot. Called with mid-pair. And even if you would have hit your Q or K you would never know where you would stand. While a lot better hands could still be possible.

      Best regards.

      Oh, I forget this :) set, trips - the same 3 of a kind :) I'll try to remember :)
