      Did i make the right move calling here, especially after BU (10/3/5 through 70 hands) had made a re-raise ?

      Sets over sets are not uncommon. I'd fold a set of 6's here vs tight players ( regs, not just tight "I'm waiting for aces, kings or queens then shove any flop" ).

      Raise, re-reraise all in, that yells set. Kings wouldn't have just called the raise pre-flop, you have the small set, so you're up against a bigger set and maybe K10. UTG2's shove was horrible, but could have saved you 60BB.

      Pre flop - i think your better off folding. A fair few players to act behind you, most likley loose players aswell so you going to be in many tuff spots post flop.

      Post flop - Nothing you can do.

      You can't fold small pocket pairs before flop just because there will be other players in the hand.

      That's the purpose of small pocket pairs: having a set with as more players in the hand as you can get, disguising your hand so you can get paid. If you don't hit, ok fold. But folding pre-flop is too tight here. The starting hand chart says late position with one raise before you: call 20. The call 20 rule is not broken here, so I don't see why to fold it preflop

      I'm not folding my set on this limit on that drawheavy board. The only hand that BU can have that beats you is TT but he can also has montser draws or even a Kx.
