Villain's stats are: 35/11/2.8 (50 hand sample)

Im heavilly invested and if Im up against two pair or a set I can make a straight with a Jack (which would either win the full pot or tie it if he has KJ).

Gut tells me calling is right.

Hi Sle4,

I would call him... it seems unlikely he's playing a set this way on the flop, I'd be more concerned about that if he 3b all in right there. We block KJ, if he's out of line with Q9 or J8 then I guess he gets the money when we don't improve... playing that wide in spots like this will crush him, even though he'll get lucky once on a while. We should get shown plenty of AQ/JJ/QJs/JTs type of worse hands imo.
