      Ok,we all know that a set on this limit on such a non-scary board is a go-broke hand.But against this passive-nit(16/12/1.3AF), in a limped pot, I was pretty close to fold it.However, I called as -
      Im pretty sure he called me on the flop with a FD or top pair.
      That c/r on the turn could come from top two, or A:h9(not sure he's active enough to do it though),or the nuts JT ofc(he's not the guy calling potsize bets on gutshot).
      The river potsize bet could mean the busted nutflaush draw got a top pair(or even two with the A:h9),or some other two pair trying to get value.Not counting other sets(he's raising them PF imho),Im beat by JT(still that impossible gutshot call bothered me),Im winning the logical hands I already mentioned.Thoughts?
