      We discussed, m8, and I gave you my two cents. Basically, against sets you a slight dog here; against all other hands you're ahead. Sets are comparatively rare so I think it's a mistake - without solid reads - not to be willing to get it in here.

      Any spade or A or 9 will give you likely nutz, but will kill the action since all draws are v obvious on this flop. So getting the money in on the flop - if villain is willing - seems best to me. NH.

      You have 15 clear outs here, i cant see fold. Its like 60% that the card what you need coming down, all-in here is best for you.

      I think just shoving is best here. Obvs you are ahead - his only set hand is probably 44 - would expect them to 3-bet with TT,JJ preflop in position imo. Then you're ahead of all the draws and what else they can have.

      If you called his raise you are OOP and donking would just look slightly werid imo unless you know he responds to it v.aggro so you might not get all the money in always if he has like Jx and another spade/straight completing card falls so I would just attempt to get it in on the flop.

      with oesfd+ As gives you royal, easy shove.
      You have fold equity and even against set should be have 50% equity
