      Hey Bosiati,

      SB has a set extremely often when he raises flop. As such you don't really get the odds that your direct odds suggest because you are going to be facing a turn barrel very often.

      Folding directly to flop raise would be fine. If you felt you had decent implieds and that villain would still stack off with his set on a club turn you should flat and hope to hit.

      Similar situation exists on the turn. You pick up more outs to the nuts. At worst you probably have about 22% equity. You need 26% to call. Again if you felt you had river implieds and would get paid on a J or club river you should call.

      Raising is a poor choice however because you are behind villains range and presumably have no fold equity.
