      Hey Keoghh,

      Standard play at these stakes is to fold. Usually villain has a set.

      Players do not have a balanced check-raising range here because they cbet all stuff like flush-draws and Kx. Most of the time they cbet sets too, but it's usually the first hand to get put into the "slowplay" category.

      If he's continually taking this line, you should obviously defend top pair. My guess is it will happen pretty rarely though, at least with most opponents at these limits.
