      Hello RazDirk,

      Well, what do you think you are against on the turn what raises you there? Only hope is that you see 33/44 playing this way. :P But while FD completed and he raises right then I would assume more towards flushes.

      Also what you should be asking on the turn is that what's the purpose of the Bet? How many worse hands do you see there continue?

      Best Regards.

      Thank you veriz, I put him on a 22\33\AK\67d+ something like that.
      I have seen a lot of micro players slow play sets on draw heavy boards, but then again I have not seen people 2bet turn after a flush completing with a set. I guess I should work on folding. Is it wrong if I call\Fold River?

      pot will be 4,7 when you have 2,57 left.

      so nah, he probably just has an "easy shove any river" and you don't get odds to draw to FH.

      not many, Kx mostly can and FD. But what to do - check/fold top set? He can then easily bluff on turn if we check.

      Or c/c turn is better? In case he is not bluffing, we still have outs.

      Rather Check it and let him bluff with weaker hands or floats and at the same time you might even get the implied odds for drawing FH/Quads. :)
