      Hi ReStart,

      I would just fold or 4-bet preflop. This hand is not great to call pre and just gets us in a lot of problem spots. What was your plan when you almost always miss or flop a draw? Play passive or aggressive?

      2p+ only happens 5% of the time. 20% of the time you'll have a draw.

      4bet?Is that profitable on the long run?
      I know that and i rarely call 3bets with these hands but i just called because of my opponent.
      If i missed i would just fold.But if i hit..i know im going to stack him off

      As I mentioned you hit ~5% of the time, that's a lot less than a set that's marginally profitable.

      When you hit a draw, guess what, you will put even more money in the pot.

      And a draw on the flop only hits 16-18% of the time on each street so you can imagine how much money you'll leave on the table chasing it. Not to mention that you will not always win when you do hit.

      Just in hopes that you hit a magic flop one in 20 times? I don't think so.

      To me this looks more like a tilty call because you kept getting 3-bet by him, and lucky for us, we got lucky :)
