      Unless you are expecting to get raised by some sort of maniac behind you, i would recommend open raising with all your pocket pairs in a 6max game if you intend to play them. I'd also c/r a little bigger on the flop, your opponent would still think he has fold equity if you make it like $7, but you give him worse odds should he choose to flat with a draw.

      As played, i don't think i'm ever folding against an unknown even for that price, for all i know he could do that with AA, KT, a flushdraw, some kind of combo draw. Even average players will sometimes put YOU on a draw there and make a stand with TPTK so that you can't shove over yourself for fold equity.

      AA alone is as likely as him having a higher set, and people hate to fold AA, so they hope you have Kx and ship it in there. If you get set-over-set'd without a better read on the player it's a cooler, don't beat yourself up.

      Hope it helps.
