      villain 22/17 af 2.7 cbet 62 ftcbet 0 wtsd 29% (0.0 3bet) 122

      Flop: after he raises my cbet i really though about rasing maybe less to be able to fold vs a push because a push would most likely just come from a better set or 87, i don't really think he is playing like this a FD, or that he would slow play PF AA,KK...

      After i got to show down to see set vs overset ofc i said i was right, but i don't want to be results oriented.

      Did i make the right play here? I think i just did not have enough info on villain to decide on a critical re`raise/fold flop with bottom set :|

      Well, there are only 3 ways villain could make 99. 87s would be 4 ways, and I don't know how to rule out something like TT, or JJ. It makes sense that they would have more preflop aggression with QQ+. But versus a range including 99-JJ and 87s, I think it is a must bet. If the villain could ever play even just TT,99,and87s this way, you are ahead...
      But if the villain will never play anything but a set or made straight this way, it is clearly a must fold.

      Hello cozacu,

      Does speak against your assumptions. I mean if you don't think that he is raising with FD then what do you expect to see here? Against what you going to be ahead? :) Clearly he can't have 2pairs cause he ain't most likely calling with something like 96.

      Best Regards.

      So correct play would be re`raise smaller/fold to shove? Some overpair could still be in his range? Slowplayed AA,KK
