      I have not looked at the spoiler.
      no way I fold top set on that flop.
      even if he has 89, you have redraws to full house.
      I'd be figuring out how to get my stack in.

      Folding is bad, you are ahead of draws, 2 pairs and other sets (if we simply outright pretend overpairs are not possible)...you are only behind a made straight which is a pretty narrow range to put the villains on. I just try to get it in but even if you put him exactly on a straight you still have implied odds to draw to a boat or quads.

      Hello Slurpee,

      Opponent may easily have worse sets here, so pretty easy go broke spot. Even if he has straight then we still have enough of outs, he could of course as well even just have pair+draw/2pairs.

      Best Regards.

      That's just poker, we can't really do much there. :( Try to keep your a-game and continue with clear mindset.
