      im not sure about turn, but i would raise flop close to pot on such a coordinated board. flop raise sizing lets villain continue with all fds/sds for really cheap

      I think you flop reraise should be much higher to protect against draws. I would not be scared of a made hand here because there is many hands the LAG will play here that are less than that (and you can get value from) and in the unlikely case of a made hand you still have a lot of outs for a full house.

      On turn I'd curse and then muck the hand. Too many of his possible hands just made a straight or are still dangerous draws to you (which is important because a reraise is now out of the question).

      Hello 13BlackCats,

      Flop raise is clearly way too small, you want to protect your hand not give good odds. ;) Though as played on the turn most likely if you assume not having implied odds then sure folding is the safest option. But if the guy is also rather bad player then might even take the implied odds for FH/Quads, whilst sometimes he might even have worse sets which are played badly.

      Best Regards.
