      I hate folding to those stupid small bets, but I hate calling them too, because he'll know I have a weak hand and can just bet bigger on the river and take the pot... What should I do ?(

      Hello Tosh5457,

      Well, why not keep it easy and simple? If you Call it preflop in 3bet pot for the set-value then just keep it this way. :) He is gonna play IP against you and it will be hard to play for you being OOP on turn where he can even easily 2nd barrel. Just give it up.

      Or either way Check/Call the flop if you consider yourself being ahead and then fold on turn. Although I guess I would just make it easy and simple fold it on flop, he may still bet this way even with some kind of PP which beats you.

      Best regards.
