Hi rudar,

Firstly, the most likely action for our sets will come from the preflop raiser, so you can't be completely discounting this player from the preflop read. I'm not sure if you did or didn't in game tbh, as you said if it were heads up you would have folded pre... but a good evaluation of set mining profitability should include his info none the less when asking here.

All that being said, having a loose fish cold calling certainly adds to the value of our set mining profitability, making this an easy $3 call to set mine either way.

Post flop is played perfectly, nh!

Firstly i would say opening 22 here is too loose. i would advise 66+ in this position! your play as above was fine. but if you do continue to open this wide it will become difficult to show a profit!
