      Is it bad to call preflop with low PP?
      When he raises me, off course it looks very strong, but can I really fold set? When I hit set I always look just how to get to all in, if flush or straight doesnt complete, and what is the point of callin 44 preflop if i am going to fold here?
      So far, for normal stack size I was not folding set.

      calling PP is great pre, esp in this spot when we have position. we can hit a set, show down our pair, or bluff to win the pot in position.
      i wont fold a set here, it's unfortunate we get out set but that happens so rarely. you should see your low pocket pairs making money when you cold call them.
