      CO showed K K and won $23.43 ($11.41 net)
      Hero mucked J J and lost (-$12.02 net)

      VPIP: 24, PFR: 13, 3B: 2, AF: 1,9, Hands: 1924

      Call for Call15 rule PF.
      Rest is self explanatory, due to his minibets I call a couple of times with some showdown value.

      What should I do against this type of play?
      It's so weird!

      Hey,

      Tough to say if you can call.. vs 2% you probably can but play only for set.. Think of it this way: calling pre to hit a set post is +EV. Calling any other bets post is not. Thus, you reduce your +EV play from preflop to probably a -EV play if you put in this much money post with your weak hand.

      I think your EV in general for just setmining OOP is going to be very small. This means you should play PURELY for set mining. Also, be prepared to give up a lot since you don't flop a set that often. Given the very small and questionable EV of calling here OOP to setmine, I'd usually fold pre but that's a bit of a Fast Fold reflex since the spot is arguably 0EV just makes us more annoying to play against since we don't fold to as many 3bets.

      Regarding post: What hands make sense from your opponent? Doesn't he have the same range as preflop of KK+, AK, maybe QQ? If so, why bother calling? EVER?!

      Because sometimes I go into sharkfish mode saying "bet that small? I'M GOING TO BLUFF YOU OUT BY CALLING WMWUAHAUHAUAHUA" and fail.
      That's why.

      Dw anyway, I don't need many reminders to not do the same mistake again ;)

      What emmanuel said, you really beat nothing of a QQ+/AK+ range on this turn, and people play QQ-KK and even Ax like this so often. Definitely just check/fold turn.
