      Hi,


      It's fine, he's a fish, he doesn't even have 50bb, and you have good equity against pretty much anything. Just the simple fact that he could be shoving worse spade draws there is enough to warrant you going broke even if most of the time he has a set. Obviously he'll also have some pair hands against which your overcard outs are good sometimes.

      Too bad you lost that time, but it doesn't make the play bad. NH.


      Hope it helps.
