      I`m getting my money in with that on the flop given the fact that I have about 50% equity even just against overs and sets.

      I don`t like calling as much as raising there because if turn blanks you will often have to make a call with less equity by your side and if you do hit you`re not sure you can stack him off anymore because at least the fd is obvious.

      Oh and there is really no point in calling preflop with such a hand if you don`t go for stacks on a flop like that.

      Do you really need the equilator with an OESFD?

      I was surprised to see I only have 42% equity vs a set, hence the question.
      I will have to call next time vs this type of player(setminer) imo, maybe someone else calls or squeezes.

      If you are sure he has a set, then calling is definitely better, since you're putting your money in behind and you know you'll get his whole stack when you hit.

      But then, you gotta be SURE, eh? =)

      All in all, it's hardly ever wrong to put your money in the flop wih an OESFD.

      I´d also raise and get all-in on the flop
      there is always good chance that player would bet/fold to your raise and if he decides to shove you´re flipping or are ahead whatever he holds.
