      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.75.

      That's a pretty dry board and he has a narrow range. More often he has a strong hand there like top pair or better.

      If you do decide to call what is your plan on the turn? Do you think he is going to stop bluffing and give up? Or call again to bluffcatch?

      I think fold is best and if you believe he is bluffing you could turn your hand into a bluff and raise over him. You don't have much showdown value and a hand like 67 has 30% equity you don't mind taking right now instead of calling and seeing a turn.

      Hi Daisuke,

      I agree with cutegoldfish that folding, with our hand, is best (given the lack of info we have).

      It's true that he doesn't represent many combos of sets (4 in total) but we don't know if he is capable of raising a Qx hand for thin value. So if we call what do we do? Call down on blanks? Our hand is somewhat vulnerable. So the only other option would be a 3-bet on the flop, as a bluff but against unknown I'd stay away from that.
