      Hello Philfox1985,

      Unfortunately nope. I would play the same way. Might even make it bigger raise on flop & bigger bet on turn. :) He is a station, will Call anyways if he has a hand. What's your plan if he decides to raise the river? :D

      Best regards.

      Pretty nasty spot, if he raises.

      However, the question is whether he would have raised me previously if he had hit a set, against most opponents I expect them to raise, so it becomes pretty unlikely. Added to that he didn't even bother raising pre-flop, just doesn't make too much sense.

      The only two cards I'm scared of & makes sense would be 86.

      If I was to fold it would only be to a very passive opponent think.

      Folding would be most likely the correct line. :) Doubt that he would raise there with a lot worse.
