      I would bet the flop. You need to protect your hand against draws.
      As played, calling allin is ok. You can´t fold your set

      Hi gutshotstraightdraw!

      I agree with Gungunhana. You should bet and protect your hand. If the preflop raiser checks behind and another :diamond: appears on the board you don't know if you still have the best hand. In addition: you are out of position. If you bet on the flop you might get a raise from the preflopraiser which is the best possible outcome. You want to play for stacks in this spot.

      Good luck at the tables!
