      I dont know how to react in this situations. Many players in NL10 mini raise with a top pair. But sometimes they have set. So OOP it is very hard to play it.
      If I play click back, he still might just call me with set or two pairs.
      Should I already fold turn considering his large bet? Is fold river fine? There are so many set possibilities

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: Looks fine

      Flop: Given that the board is so dry I prefer a call here and play the turn.

      However on the turn is where we need to make our decision if we are calling down or not. Considering he bet strong and we are OOP we can anticipate another bet on the river. So I don't like calling turn if I don't call blank rivers (like this one).
