      Kind of ugly situation. Villian unknown. He could do it with set or AJ, or any Ax.
      Turn not possible to fold, even when he bets pot size again because of his small stack size?

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I doubt he would pot flop and turn with sets but it's possible. He only really represents 33 and JJ (for sets) and AJ/A3 for 2p. I could see A3 betting like this because it may want more protection.

      Given that he is short and someone unknown I'd play it the same. It would be tougher if the Kx doesn't come on the turn.
