      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 8 :club: 8 :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.30, 2 folds, BTN raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20 well, he has 40bb, so cant really setmine, but can I fold here?

      Flop: ($1.15) 2 :diamond: 7 :club: 4 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.60, Hero? f_ck, I'm confused, really, what to do here... his range is just so wide

      Hello,

      Preflop the problem with calling is that his range is quite wide and even if we hit our set we are not 100% sure that it will pay off plus we are going to have a hard time playing this OOP since there will be overcards on the flop most of the time.
      I do agree that folding here looks too weak but if we are going to have a hard time playing postflop and this is probably going to result in us losing more money why don't we just fold?

      As played preflop, I would check/call the flop once here and reevaluate on the turn.

      Best,
