      Should I have just called his re-raise? Would you have put him on pocket kings and folded? He did not reraise, so the only one I thought could have kings, was MP1. I did not act on that thought, though, and I certainly did not think that anything else would have me beaten. Was this badly played, or just extremely bad luck?

      No way you're folding this. You're only beat by KK. ONLY. If he has KK, it's jusdt a terrible cooler.

      You're pretty much never folding a set on a dry board. He can have AA, 22, AK.

      As to calling his bet, I think it's ok, but just because the board is SO dry, there are no draws whatsoever. So I don't mind calling flop in order to keep everyone in the hand.

      I´m also not folding there middle set
      I think raising flop seems a little better option, since players usually doesn´t like to fold top pair hands in dry boards, so you can likely looked up a lot of times Kx hands
