      Just after the hand I thought folding to the 4bet may have been best but I'm getting ~2:1 pot odds and if I give him a range of 46, 55, 77, 6s8s, As2s, As4s, As6s I have ~35% equity making it a call, but if he doesn't 4bet the nutflush/gutshot hands then it's a close fold with 31%. If I factor in the rake a fold seems slightly better but if he's overplaying 2pair or an overpair then calling is definitely correct, so is this call okay?

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      It's fine, you probably shouldn't ever be folding a set to a bad player, there is always a chance he's going nuts with worse hands or with hands we still have a fair number of outs against, which means you have to call it off because by the time you figure out his range is that strong you're often priced in. If he shows you a higher set it's a cooler.

      Hope it helps.
