      Hello faronel,

      Why do you think he is set mining? Do you know the opponent or what was the reason? But if you are so sure then sure, your play seems to be fine. In long run you going to earn a lot profit from such players.

      Best Regards.

      Villain limp-called my raise from UTG + he had low stats: VPIP 16, PFR 9 (only for 23 hands though during the hand played). Of course, this range includes broadways, but I am inclined to conclude that villain was rather set mining than calling my raise with some random broadway. And any bigger hand (AQ+, TT+) would have raised it, or maybe even donk betted the flop for protection/fold equity.


      I see that I have 35% equity vs his 65%, but I played against villain's stats and action pre/postflop...

      They can limp anything, unless you have more reads on him don't just put PPs into his range.
