      UTG+2: $1.49 (29.8 bb) - VPIP: 21, PFR: 10, 3B: 7, AF: 1.3
      Hero (MP1): $5.35 (107 bb) - VPIP: 17, PFR: 7, 3B: 2, AF: 1.6
      MP2: $12.62 (252.4 bb) - VPIP: 16, PFR: 4, 3B: 1, AF: 2.6
      MP3: $5.89 (117.8 bb)
      CO: $3.78 (75.6 bb)
      BTN: $1.54 (30.8 bb)
      SB: $2.45 (49 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG: $8.58 (171.6 bb)
      UTG+1: $1.64 (32.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 5 5
      2 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.18, MP2 calls $0.18, MP3 calls $0.18, 4 folds

      Flop: ($0.80) 9 K 5 (4 players)
      UTG+2 bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80, MP2 raises to $12.44 and is all-in, MP3 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.51 and is all-in, Hero ????

      first thought that cross my mind when MP2 3bet was higher set with 99 but then i start to think over and put him on AA maybe AK so i called like the other mate. later i was analyzing and when i put him on 99&AA i got 35% equity against him which is close to call. although he was deepstack was it mistake to call and therefore is fold an option?

      I'd call with 55; why do we even bother to call pre-flop, if we won't go broke with it?

      You are nearly always ahead on that flop. If your opponent shows off set, then it's just bad luck, mate.

      the fact that he's deepstacked doesn't matter since he's only playing for MP3 stack at best.

      on to the hand...
      95%+ of players would not squeeze shove a set on this flop. he's more likely to have some random pair (maybe twopair) hand.
      that said, if he has a set then you also most likely can't get away without extra reads anyway.

      so just call it off. if he DOES have it, then take a note and nice level sir.

      Hello srna10,

      Nah, I'd also snap it off there. :) No way I am folding whilst the guy may easily overplay a lot of hands there.

      Best Regards.

      thanks mates,

      i assume that calling this was right decision but i just want to hear more experience players about this hand. villain could easily overplayed his hand with TP or 2Pairs on this flop and that was just bad luck. in 50k hands if i got 20 set-over-set and beat with flush, FH or quads i'm good with that.

      kind regards
