      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Can't really raise for value so calling is fine.

      Turn: I would actually call at least one more street. Villain is trying to represent a flush with the very large bet however he doesn't have that many combos of flushes in his range, especially once we hold Qh.

      The only big flush he can have is really KJhh and then some small ones like 76 or 65. Overall very few combos and he'd rarely ever bet a set/2p/tp like this. So for me it's an easy call.

      Why do you think? He could protect vs 1card FDs so hard with them.

      Sure he could but people usually get scared of that flush card and don't want to bet too much and scare opponent.

      We don't need to bet that much to protect versus a one card flush there and normally you see people betting strong with nutty hands. Well 2p/Sets are not nutty on that turn anymore and players know that and bet less.

      What would you bet on this turn with a set of TT? Full pot? If so why (besides protection which is overated)? Think about what range you are targetting or can call you.

      Of course if you play a big fish it's a different story but are talking reg vs reg.
