      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $78.45
      BU:
      $50.85
      BB:
      $94.10
      MP3 (Hero):
      $86.70


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 2, 2.
      Hero raises to $1.50, CO folds, BU calls $1.50, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.5) A, 5, 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.50, BU calls $2.50.

      Turn: ($8.5) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.00, BU calls $6.00.

      River: ($20.5) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $15.00, BU raises to $40.85(All-In), Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $35.5.

      The more i think about this hand the more i like this fold. Villain only shoves flush/higher set here, IMO. Opponent is solid TAG. Thoughts?

      He will often raise a set earlier in the hand for protection, especially on the turn when the third spade comes. I guess he would 3-bet JJ preflop so he either has a flush or AJ and I'm not sure he's always raising AJ for value there. Still, you need to be good once in four times to get 0 EV so I guess I would make the call.

      I doubt he´d shove there for value sets. So to me it is always like flush or maybe sometimes indeed AJ that he decides to shove instead of calling down
      I wouldn´t fold set there, since my image is probably too bad, but if you looks him like nit who would not barrel too many times river then fold is fine.
