      Hello,

      Easy fold preflop. Having this stack size, we can't really call for set mining here.

      I don't like donking the flop here. This way, we don't give him the opportunity to bluff, so I would check/raise.

      As played on the flop, turn and river are good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      What do you mean by set mine?
      If i fold all small pocket pairs then which hands i can play?

      Set mining is calling with the intention to continue postflop only if we hit the set.

      We could raise here something like 88+, AJs+, AQ+. Playing according to MSS we should be less inclined to call in these spots.

      But my range should change a little depending on opponents right? Which factors should i look? Its really hard to grasp all this info at once.

      Of course your range should be changed based on the different opponents.

      In these spots you should be aware off:
      First - his PFR from the exact position and his overall PFR. (Warning: if you don't have big enough sample you should be more aware on the overall PFR than the position since we can't really expect a 14/12 guy over 100 hands to raise 30% on UTG, right).
      Second - his fold to 3bet - does he folds to 3bet a lot, and if not - does he calls or 4bets more? If he folds a lot we could start 3betting him as a bluff more often, but if he seems to defend his blinds we should only stick to the value range.
      Third - his postflop tendencies. If we do spot something weird in his postflop play that might be exploited we could go for a call and exploit it. For example if he cbets a lot of the flop but check/folds a lot on the turn then we could call preflop and flop and take the pot on the turn.
