      Preflop: Hero is BB with 3:spade: , 3:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.10), Hero posts big blind ($0.25), 2 folds, SB raises for $0.65, Hero calls

      I am 81 blinds deep on a flop with a set of threes in position against the small blind who raised preflop. He is unknown to me. I my line ok on this board or should I reraise on the flop to protect my set or not go for value on the turn when my hand is secure?

      Why are you sitting with less than 100bb? It's a huge mistake...

      Against unknown flatting preflop is marginal, we dont know anything about his postflop play, we will rarely hit our set, and have to fold on lots of flops. Even setmining odds are worse because of 81bb.

      As played just raise flop, as you'd do with a lot of bluffs/semibluffs on this board.

      Hello generals007,

      Add to full stack if playing BSS.

      Raise the flop! You need to protect there. Or either once you hit your FH rather let him hit as well something and continue weaker hands + bluffs -> aka call the turn.

      Best Regards.
