      Hi,

      I would still raise the flop because they are only betting .15 into a pot of $1.45 so i would raise it up to $1.

      As played on turn is fine :)

      He had set of 3. Surely he will go broke with sets, but does player like him would go broke with hands which we beats?

      Am I ev+ if I go broke with hands like above, or mostly better hands raises me and worse calls/folds?

      Its very likely he will go broke with AK, AQ, KK, QQ, A3s even

      Its hard to put him on pocket pair because he is 29/0 = passive :f_cool: (although not a lot of hands) and he also bets 0.15 into a $1.45 pot which is why you should raise flop. If he reraises were put in a tough spot but then the only hand he beats us with is a set. He could reraise AA, TT preflop but we have an A and a T which means only two Aces and Tens are left. 33 is the only real possible hand he will beat us with here.

      Raise these min donks on the flop.

      As played, raise to $5,00 would be sufficient. And of course, you go broke here :D

      Does line which I choose is less profitable?
      I am afriad that if i raise flop, then only better hands would call/raise me, and what I belive is that raise turn is less scary to opponent with hands like AQ/AK, A3 etc.

      He could be easily donking with gutshot and want to get a cheap turn card and that's what you are giving him, just raise it up on flop for protection and extract value from worse.
