      villain is 19/15 in 102 hands, 2.7AF

      Hands that could probably have me beat are 99, 88, 33

      Hands that i probably beat here are JJ, TT, and possible 55 - 77

      should i fold here? tricky spot? or standard ship?

      Hello YinYangS,

      Well, it's really dumb spot. Since I really doubt that the opponent has there 55-77. The only question if he could have played TT/JJ this way since they are going to be the only hands what we beat here.

      But do we really expect him to flat with TT/JJ vs min-raise? Obviously if we consider him having such a range as sets+TT/JJ we can consider going for the stacks:

      Board: 9:spade: 3:club: 8:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    44.53%  44.53%   0.00% { JJ-88, 33 }
      UTG+1  55.47%  55.47%   0.00% { QhQs }

      But I might even be towards making a crying fold while not knowing much about the opponent. We can't even be sure that he is flatting vs min-raise those hands. Usually towards such a play they will have a lot of PPs in their range and that's also why they raise there on the flop which hit a set.

      Best Regards.
