      I agree, you can just pot it.


      Well the pot odds certainly make it easier to justify a call, which means when you're playing unknowns you can't really fold.

      That said, if you know SB is a reasonable tag, the truth is he's barely ever bluffing there it's just too likely somebody will call especially when he makes it so small, and most tags aren't good enough to valuebet two pairs/sets on a 4-straight board. Since he'd have likely played two pairs/sets faster on previous streets anyway, you end up looking at pretty much only a K, which MP2 behind you could also have behind you.

      Hope it helps.
