      BB showed 6 6 and won $69.93 ($34.34 net)
      Hero showed K K and lost (-$35.59 net)

      Vilain is a fish 41/22 with 17% X/R flop 117 hands.

      I think I have to bet / call turn since he would have probably X/R flop with double pair or better.

      I dont agree that he needs to checkraise all his sets on the flop. Turn raises are always stronger than flop raises.

      If we only had 50bb or less left behind i would bet/call here due to the smaller stack to pot ratio whih wojld probably widen his range here. Above 60bbs i usually bet fold these spots as the pot odds offered to us is not good enough to justify calling here.

      Here we lose to 12 combos of sets and furthermore the turn card completes 78 and i think this fish may have all 16 combos of 78s and 78o so i would def bet fold this card. Other cards like J or Q will be much better for stacking off since he may have some JhXh or QhXh type of hands which could play this way, and he probably doesnt have set of Js or Qs as he would 3b pre with those hands.
