2nd hand of the dude, first hand he folded..
smells like 55 or A4..
can this be a slowplayed overpair?

fold or shove?

my first thought was to fold actually

Hey Sjekkkk,

I think you can make some strong arguments for folding bottom set on a dry board texture that doesn't really allow for many worse hands or bluffs people would typically tend to raise.

However, I think I would still not feel comfortable making that kind of fold against an unknown who doesn't have a full stack. He could well be a recreational player after all who flats stuff like 52 suited pre and thinks it is the nuts postflop. And as you say, sometimes people may show up with a slowplayed overpair here.

You should still have reasonable equity against a range of higher sets, straights, some two pair and some slowplayed overpairs as well as the occasional stuff like a low Ax/44 that turned a pair + straightdraw and gets turned into a semibluff.

If this spot was played out with deeper stacks I think I would call turn and re-evaluate on the river.
