      Should I fold here or it's ok to call his allin ? I put him on a bluff and that's the reason why i call.

      Bet the flop of course (~$0.50). You've got a set... DON'T SLOWPLAY, BUILD THE POT!

      He's never ever folding an ace here and he's unlikely to give you a lot of action on furter streets if he doesn't have anything anyway.

      As played I'm folding the river. Bet/call turn, donkovershove the river is so strong. He's gonna show up with a 7 so often there it's not even funny. I'd fold and cut my losses here tbh.

      I would fold river
      He has there 7x most of the times and I don´t see why he should shove river with two pair
