      Hi,

      I like folding flop, even it might seems weak. There are two things for me:
      1. we have just 2nd pair with weak FD on mono board, where we are dominated by lot of hands
      2. his sizing is quite big and his stack is only 60bb, so I think on flop we are facing decision to fold or shove

      Hello malcolmlinco,

      Yep, agree that we can't really do much on such a spot, especially whilst his raise is pretty decent and no way we have implied odds. So I'd also Bet/Fold it. :)

      Best Regards.
