      With such a large bet should I just fold here?
      Against a flush draw I'm ok in the long run, but against two pair/set
      I guess I'm not too good.

      Hi there, i think you played the hand fine. The way it was played pre-flop the set and FD are your biggest worries but i think the villain probably c/r a set and maybe c/c a FD. Also two pair is very unlikely on that flop.

      I would never have put MP1 on the hand he has. I'd have put him on a weaker A. As it happens i think he played his hand awful and was lucky that no one else hit anything better. As for the guy in UTG2 i think with his stack size you are more often ahead with TPTK.

      Finally if you are playing BSS you should have at least 100bb in front of you for every hand.

      Hi,


      Lot of money in the pot already, two bad opponents, top pair no kicker on one of the driest boards out there, you can't play it any different in my opinion. They could have some draws, worse Qx hands, some pocket pairs that put you on AK so you obviously didn't hit the Q, it's just not a spot where you're looking to fold pretty much ever.

      As jxb1977 said tho, make sure you keep your stack topped off to maximize the value you get from your good hands.


      Hope it helps.
