      I guess he is fish. In my experience, fish always minraise drawy Flop with monster bacause he will raise big with draws. However, I just can't fold the bottom set. how do you play this hand?

      Hello JHTAN,

      Well, it's hard to fold. Either way I am just playing for the stacks or just Calling. There is no way I am folding here directly. He is giving you way too good odds and of course he may even oveprlay his TP or even pair+draw here.

      Best Regards.
