      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      I am definitely raising the flop here. We have quite a good made hand and we want to put the money in as soon as possible.
      If we just call we risk that bad turn cards may come here and kill the action or give villain a better hand.

      As played on the flop, I would call the turn here. He could still bet worse hands like AQ/AJ/AK.

      Best,
      Plamen

      And if villain re-raise my flop raise? It's an easy fold?

      It's flop all-in always. If you will fold sets it will be too exploited. The question is if you are not ready to play set on stack every flop, why do you call preflop?

      Preflop vs unknown is awful, unless you think the opponent is lose and can overplay his hands.

      David, even if you are facing a made flush on the flop here, you still have quite a decent chunk of equity to redraw to a full house.

      Villain's range TT+ (Tc), A(c)J, AQ, AK, KcQ, KcJ, suited connected clubs, KT with a club... its quite a wide range that could two barrel you here...

      Against a range similar to that in equilab you have 73.53% of it on the flop. Bet-raise-jam it!

      Hey,

      Even against this range - QQ-JJ,AdAc,AhAc,AsAc,KdKc,KhKc,KsKc,QJs,AcKc,AcQc,AcJc,AcTc,AcKd,AcKh,AcKs,AcQd,AcQh,AcQs,AcJd,AcJh,AcJs,AcTd,AcTh,AcTs, we have around 53% equity and people could go further and shove some naked AA/KK etc so we have an easy stack off here.
