      Hi Elertar just took a look on your hand, and for me it looks that against his range your equity on this kind of board is always pretty high. I think I would've called him there, it's also pretty possible he would raise it with also many other hands like weaker sets two pair or smth not necesseraly straight. Plus his raise was so small - you had to call 0,60$ to win 2.53$ pot. But maybe I am wrong, maybe I just have problems to lay down my hands too often :D

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, I doubt that I would play it much differently. There are still some 2pair type of hands or even sets which may pay us. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
