      Probably fold - he is reraising you so he likely has something that beats you imo. You have As so there aren't any huge draws really. And it's just too easy for him to have a set here imo.

      Calling and reevaulating on the turn is also ok i suppose - but in my opinion if you feel uneasy about making the call now then I would rather fold since there is a v.high chance he continues betting.

      Hi,


      It's never easy to have a set, and even tho the limp/call preflop hints at a passive player you have no way of knowing he's not some aggro donk that would play spades/Ax like that.

      Depends on what you've seen him do before i guess. If he's the aggressive kind mostly i'm not folding i'll call in position and shove over a turn bet on most turns. If he's been quite fit-or-fold, passive guy so far, it's probably best to leave him alone.


      Hope it helps.
