Villian was a good regular, with abc stats and shows goldstar, i think here with 19 bbs effective im not folding top pair and flush draw even with a mediocre kicker, should i have called? (i would be commited so i think its worse) or simply check folding?

Hi scarface,

Certainly not folding this strong a flop. I don't see any compelling reason to raise however, since he will just fold his stabs and bluffs and weak hands, and only continue with strong hands. Plus the limper is likely to have a lot of marginal holdings like JT and A7 that he might peel once time for one bet, but won't for 2. I'd prefer to keep those holdings in to add value to our hand.
