      villain is anonymous. If I cold call for set value, my hand is pretty face up postflop and I probably won’t get paid. If I 3bet then I can win a big pot postflop when I hit a set. I fold to a 4bet obviously, but when he calls and I miss, what sort of boards do I Cbet and what sort of boards do I give up?

      I usually fold low PP's from the blinds if I don't think I'll get paid off by loose openers. Sometimes 3bet if I think I have the fold equity. I don't seem to go so well when I call them.

      I suppose if I expect him to be passive postflop like this guy, then calling could be ok and taking a small stab somewhere later on to try and take the pot down. Might have been able to take this pot down on the turn with a stab?

      3bet pre or wait until you have more info on villain

      cbet 1/2pot
      start from here

      there is no right answer to what boards you shoudl cbet, because it all depends on villain's calling range. play with him, see how he reacts

      I don´t think you can ever fold to min-raise, also I would likely not 3-bet, since pocket 3-s is not the easiest way to play oop. I think calling and playing postflop should be the best option- you can always lead or sometimes bluffraise on low boards that also include you get paid if you hit your set against overpair

      best regards,
