      MP1 bets $2.62 (All-In), Hero...?

      I gave him a Call14 with my 3bet x4 to his raise, but maybe a x5 or x6 is better to give less odds for sets? I hit TPTK and villains line doesn't show AA or KK in his range plus there are less combinations of them due to the K on the board and me holding an A and a K. Only 3 AA's and 1 KK left. Hero goes broke? Is it better to raise a bit higher preflop?

      I'll usually make it 3.5x preflop but since he's minraising and probably bad 4x/5x is fine to be able to get it in in two streets.

      As played postflop against an unknown i don't think you can fold, note down the line he took if he had a set and move on.

      Hope it helps.
