      This spot is a little tricky to play. On one hand you may have to raise the Flop since it is a pretty good hand but is really vulnerable on so many turn cards.

      On the other hand, I feel like you are crushed here by the nit. He almost always has a set here. I think raise/folding may actually be reasonable for this situation, even though I rarely advocate such a play. Usually you should not raise something for value with the intention of folding unless you are really certain that

      1. You can gain value from worse
      2. You are crushed by a re-raising range.

      I think those 2 conditions are met here.
