      After you hit your set you can go broke no questions asked. Else don't even call preflop.

      Nevertheless, I don't really like the call preflop. See... if the guy 3bets a lot, he has a weak range. If he has a weak range, that means he might not pay you off frequently even if you hit your set. If you don't hit your set, you'll often be bluffed out of the hand - especially out of position. Lastly, you still had the CO to act... what if he shoves?

      IMO there are better ways to adapt to a player that 3bets a lot than to call 3bets out of position - *especially* if you are unsure on how to play post-flop.

      Hi.

      I would never fold in a 3b pot with a set. And I would fold preflop when the additional amount to call is so much - Having to call 8bb more is really expensive.

      Pretty much have to agree with what luizsilveira said.
