      This hand bugs me. It was so hard to fold!
      It was to much of a risk with bottom set.

      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.68 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 2:spade: , 2:club:
      Hero calls $0,05, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0,05, 2 folds, BU calls $0,05, SB calls $0,03, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0,25) 2:heart: , 9:spade: , 6:heart: (5 players)
      SB bets $0,05, BB folds, Hero raises to $0,30, MP2 raises to $4,77 (All-In), 3 folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0,90

      He said he had 38, a bluff. But I don't believe him, surely he must've had a bigger set (or AA, KK- less probable).

      This looks like a fish play to me from the villain. He could have anything but i'm quit sure he didn't had a higher set, so i would ve payed him. IMO.

      i would have called too, cause he can play the same with 2 pair (which you beat), a flushdraw (if hes really really big fish)

      Ooooh boy, this... is a scared money play dude.

      It's 5NL... come on. People at these stakes can do this with any A9 hand, hell I'd definitely stick it in with A 9 here. And at this stake people could make this play with 87 to etc... but he could just as well have slowplayed an overpair.

      If he does have a higher set it's a cooler. But folding here is just absolutely terrible. You flop a set 1/8 times... if you're gonna start folding here you might as well quit playing pocket pairs cause it'll be -EV if you play them like this.

      I´d called. he can shove there a lot worse hands like two pair or flushdraws
