      FWIW villian is 59/11 over 20 hands.

      I've been in this spot getting check-raised like 4 times today and I think everytime villian has turned over set (different villians obv) so should I just be giving check-raise credit to a set unless opponent is a maniac type.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Hi,


      I usually give a lot of credit at microstakes if they seem straightforward or just very tight, maybe sometimes too much but it works for me. ~11/9 gets credit, so does ~50/5, ~35/25 doesn't.

      In that particular hand i might call the minraise since 59/11 seems really random and he might bluff sometimes, then reevaluate on the turn depending on his timing and everything. I think folding can be okay too. I wouldn't shove because he doesn't seem to raise too much overall, so i think most of his Qx hands take the check/call line and we'd be shoving against a polarized bluffs(maybe)/monsters range, which is no good.


      Hope it helps.
