      Villain is 71/18/81, super fishy which is why I cannot fold a set here even though I believe it is the best play

      PokerStars - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $2.12
      MP+1: $5.53
      Hero (LP): $5.55
      CO: $3.84
      BTN: $7.57
      SB: $3.22

      UTG+1: $18.69

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 5:diamond: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, fold, fold, SB calls $0.18, fold

      Flop: ($0.45, 2 players) 5:club: 7:club: 8:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.43, SB calls $0.43

      River: ($6.49, 2 players) Q:spade:

      SB shows A:club: 7:spade: (One Pair, Sevens) (Pre 44%, Flop 7%, Turn 22%)
      Hero shows 5:diamond: 5:spade: (Three of a Kind, Fives) (Pre 56%, Flop 93%, Turn 78%)
      Hero wins $6.22

      I do not feel like I made the right decision here, and just want to confirm this as unfortunately the results almost "justify" calling even though I knew it was the wrong decision. The weird thing is, against a decent player, I am going to be folding here, but its like, he's so loose and so aggressive I just couldn't make myself fold even though I believed myself to be beat as the turn card is the worst possible one here apart from 6 :club: . Really disappointed in myself as this is the first time in ages I have called whilst thinking I am not getting odds to do so.

      against that player I would likely not going to fold. I can safely fold overpairs and be ok, but since his turn shove range are likely wider than 6x or flushes then I think you need to play that spot for stacks.

      Also players would also like to trap, so he may take 6x or flushes c/r line on the turn, so you should not be always beat there.

      best regards,
