      Hi,
      Two questions about the hand
      1. Preflop, after a 3bet and a call, and with 1 player still to act, should I call or fold? I called because I it was $0.9 to call, and 2 players with full stacks already were in the pot. Is this correct?
      2. On the flop, with so much action after my bet, can I think about folding my bottom set?

      Thanks!

      It is close preflop, but you call call since there is one already coldcaller and it is likely that SB also coldcalls.

      Due to the action, it is very likely that at least two players have an ace which means that it is less likely that one of them has pocket aces. It is more likely that someone has 88 rather than AA. SB is prettey agressive, so it is very likely that you are ahead against him, MP seems to be very passive (maybe calling station) and you are likely ahead against him. So you should only afraid of BB who is very tight - his PFR indicates KK+, AK while he would not have called/shoved on the flop with KK; but since it is almost sure that someone else is holding an ace, AA is less likely which lease AK.

      Nevertheless, there are so much money in the pot that it is snap call for me. You may be ahead against each of them holding AK :) or something like that and if you are behind, you have still two outs.

      I am not folding set on the flop.

      Yeah, I snap called too, and both higher sets were there... :)

      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5 5).
      SB shows high card ace(7 6).
      BB shows three of a kind, aces(A A).
      MP2 shows three of a kind, eights(8 8).

      BB wins with three of a kind, aces(A A).

      My guess on SB was correct :D

      Next time, you will have top set.
