      MP1: $4.95 (99 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with T:diamond: T:club:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, BTN folds, SB calls $0.13, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.35) 8:spade: 3:spade: T:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB raises to $0.95, Hero calls $0.65

      Turn: ($2.25) J:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.94, Hero folds


      The villian seems to be a reg, with 16/12/0,5/70 (VPIP/PFR/AF/Handd)

      Should I had fold on the flop after his 3Bet?
      During the game, I decided to call, to extrat some value of as A or K of spades.
      But after the session review my opinion is tha I should fold already on the flop.

      Hello Kony76,

      3bet the flop! We need to protect our hand and he could easily have even worse sets/hands there and not to talk about maybe even just FD. :)

      Best Regards.

      i think you needed to consider what you were going to do on the turn before calling the flop. If you couldn't call the turn without significant inprovement to your hand, I wouldn't call the flop in the first place.

      Veriz, would you be prepared to go broke here with the set? Or would you fold to a shove over your 3b on the flop?

      Sorry Veriz, but I did not understand.

      Should I 4bet the flop, is that?

      And on the turn?

      You can't 4bet there, you are 3betting on the flop. :) And yes, we are getting it in there.
