      Yes this is a call. You need about 25% equity to make a profitable call. I think villain has some pair+draw type of bluffs here and we don't have to add many to get that 25%. If we would put villain on flushes only, then the answer would be no.

      We’re putting in 25.9% of the pot and our chance of improving to a full house or quads is 10/46 = 21.7%. If we believe he can also have some bluffs and non-flush hands here, then we can call.

      Wow, I hate these spots. Not sure what I would do here, but I guess you gotta call here, but would not feel so good about it. :f_ugly:

      It’s a nasty spot for sure, but I expect if he had a better set he would raise the flop already for protection. I would go broke here and if he has a flush it’s unlucky. Another option would be to check to the raiser and check/raise on the flop.

      Cheers,

      I guess this is really an ugly spot.
      As mentioned out before, it depends on villains range what to do here for best.
      If villain allways has the flush here, than it is a fold.
      If he can push weaker hands it is an call.
      You should make a note how villain played his overpair in this situation (don`t forget he has an overpair and the FD to second nuts....)
