      These kinds of situations are always opponent dependant for me. Do you have any stats? Any reads? Normally against unknown I would say you are beat here against a set when he minraises against 2 opponents, and you're a little deep which makes me even more inclined to fold. However, if you have any stats or reads that he's a fishy player then I would definately go broke against possible TP or flushdraw hands.

      Sorry for the vague-ish answer :P

      Well he wasn't a typical calling station, VPSIP around 40, CCPF same afaik and was quite aggressive post flop. I really had him on sets, but it's super hard for me to fold in such situations.
      Even though I won way more money from identical calls than lost, I think that's a major leak in my game, because lately I'm starting to lose them.
      So you rather tend to a fold?

      Yeeeah. Well it's easier said than done of course, but when raised on the flop like this by a tag who doesnt raise a lot of cbets, its 99% a set that has to raise flop to protect against flushdraw. It *could* of course also be a flushdraw, but I think on that limit I want a read that this opponent actually pushes draws aswell before I call him.

      But now you say that this guy was a 40 VPIP with big CCPF and aggressive postflop guy, then it's definately a clear shove for me! He could then very easily have a worse hand :) so nh
