      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players


      BTN: $12.09 (120.9 bb)
      SB: $17.46 (174.6 bb)
      BB: $29.83 (298.3 bb)
      UTG+1: $13.61 (136.1 bb)
      UTG+2: $10.97 (109.7 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $10.73 (107.3 bb) 15/6/12.0/0.0/143
      MP2: $11.32 (113.2 bb)
      MP3: $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $47.55 (475.5 bb) 61/16/0.9/1.9/138

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with J J
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 2 folds, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 3 5 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.15) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.40, CO calls $1.40

      River: ($4.95) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $3, CO raises to $8, Hero raises to $8.33 and is all-in, CO calls $0.33

      Should you fold here? Had on overpair all along and have a set now. Is it safe to assume that he could have slowplayed an overpair himself and raised on the river to extract value( a hand like KK or AA) or perhaps he hit a set somewhere on the flop or turn and raised now. What do you think here? Call or Fold?

      Results: $21.61 pot ($0.97 rake)
      Final Board: 3 5 8 T J
      Hero showed J J and lost (-$10.73 net)
      CO showed 7 9 and won $20.64 ($9.91 net)

      Board: 3:heart: 5:diamond: 8:club:  T:diamond:  J:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    42.86%  42.86%   0.00% { JdJc }
      MP2    57.14%  57.14%   0.00% { TT, 88, 55, 33, 97s, 97o }


      I needed about 25% equity. The problem is his range, too wide and he could have 97, so how to handle this situation against this opponent.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Well, what you should do in first place here is to Bet the flop & turn bigger to protect your hand. Your bet sizing is pretty weak.

      But as played I doubt that I would get away while the opponent could easily even have worse sets there. Not that many hands did complete either.

      Best Regards.
