      Without reads, Hero goes broke, expecting the 80bb fish to be bad enough to slowplay play a big pair like that, as well as some (combo)draws and maybe sometimes a good top pair.

      You'll rarely be in a position to actually make a correct fold with a set without very precise reads, especially against bad players who play badly by definition and/or on board textures that allow your opponents to have good draws. Every hand you lose against an unknown with a fast-played flopped set at microstakes is a cooler, forget about it :)

      Hope it helps.
