      Did you have any readings on him? Ok that he could be on 88 , (7.5:1 chances) but he could also be on 2pair or even top pair. I would have bet like you did. Cant fold a set on a random board like that.

      Hi degnic!

      You cannot fold your set here. It is correct to move all-in on this flop.
      But please don't slowplay on this board. The preflopraiser could check behind on the flop and if another :club: comes up on the turn you don't know if you have the best hand. So I would bet right away on the flop.

      Good luck at the tables!

      original raiser was very aggressive so I was pretty sure I wouldn't miss the raise part on the flop. Other villain was unknown, thought a fold for a second because check/reraise seemed like very very strong hand (bit hard to believe in 2 pairs) but decided to move AI anyway and see the 88 if he really has it.
