      This has to be sth like a big PP for limp/raise preflop.

      The one thing you have to be afraid here is AdKd. But even against it u have 7 outs on the turn and 10 on the river.

      I put him on AA or KK.

      I raise preflop too but fold to his reraise because don't get good enough odds to call - if he had like $5 easy call cos often this is AA/KK and so if we hit set we can stack easily.

      On flop obviously get it all in. He will most likely have KdK or AdA and even then you have redraws on his flush like kymupa said.

      I agree on the postflop play, you can't fold top set for that price ever, you called preflop just to flop it, rejoice.

      As for preflop as played when he min3bets we're getting 3:1 immediate odds and he's got another $2.5 in his stack for a grand total of 13:1 implieds. Consider he's a 16/5 who is limp/reraising, I think it's an easy call for set value, we'll stack a big pair almost every time we hit.

      Hope it helps.
