      you should definitely at least call the flop raise for the given odds & implied odds

      and no, ur not flipping vs a set, nor do i think he has a set

      EDIT: try posting your hands to the evaluation forum

      thats what i mean, im actually a good bit behind a set, i have no fold equity basically then if i re raise jam, ( coz set will def call ) so i thought at time folding will be best?

      Hey LoKKK,

      Raising here would not be a good option, you have no fold equity and probably do not have the best hand.

      I agree opponent has a set/2pair very often. You have 8 clean outs. You are only guaranteed to see 1 additional card which gives you 16% equity. If opponent has a set/2-pair he will also have redraw opportunities even if you hit, so total equity is closer to 13%. You need 24% equity to call.

      This means that if you hit you will need opponent to put in an extra 92 cents on turn or river. It's pretty close, and I doubt you will make this profitable in the long run since opponent is not deep.

      However it may be ok to call if you think you will always get opponents stack or if you think opponent may not always barrel the turn (but I think it's likely he will).
