      Fold pre-flop against a re-raise. I don't expect him to have a set here. He either has AK or JJ's+. A low pair would usually cold call a raise and play in position.

      I probably would second that. Also you are out of position, so you can't check behind to take a free card or try to steal if your opponent checks to you.

      It is a min-reraise, its often quite hard to fold to them.

      Also raise to 4bb preflop.

      On flop i would fold as well.

      Min-reraises can mean everything. It is hard to fold to them but you can get into some tough spots if you don't.

      raise pf 4bb, if he minraise you and you are not sure in yourself playing OOP you can fold but i would call his minraise. as played its hard to play vs him being OOP because even if we call his cbet on the turn we will be faced with a hard decision so c/f on this board is ok.

      Please raise it up x4BB pf.

      Preflop: Stats might help us in out decision. If he is playing tight you can fold, but I don't mind calling here. (just remember you will play OOP and if you want comfortable with that you can fold)

      Flop: Does a set bet here? It's really opponent dependent. Some guys might slowplay a set here, some guys will bet (I personally would cause I usaully cbet when I'm the aggressor.)

      BUT, I don't think he has a set here cause he wouldn't 3bet preflop with 22/44/55. He probably has an OP here and Check/Fold is our line on this flop (which makes your decision the correct one :) )

      Good Luck,
