      He's aggro and a set wouldn't bet so small on turn. Anything wrong here?

      Same as the 77 hand except this time you know he's pretty aggro and you have a little more equity. Still he might have Jx, a flush draw, T9, random overcards with decent equity against you, some combo of all of this. Even against a minraise in position you need to be confident he's really getting out of line to start a call down with 2PNK since many turn cards will look ugly as hell for your hand, basically anything higher than an 8.

      As played on the turn nothing else you can do, you will certainly not let him get a free river with his blockbet. Raise and then you have to call a shove, if he leveled you with a set make a note.

      Hope it helps.
