You had previuosly seen this player raise the same amount with A9s and he has an 4-1 chip lead over you.
Stack sizes are roughly 3k and 12k.
Based on what you had seen earlier, do you call this in hopes of set mining? and if not, what raise is worth calling in this situation as I have found this to be one of the leaks in my game.
Fixed your post. Don't open limp, even if you intend to only play the hand for set value. Your opponent is playing good positional poker, punishing you for your limp. If he re-raises you, then you can put him on a much narrower hand range (right?), and make your decision much easier.
Btw, my general rule for set mining is the smaller stack needs 10x the amount of the call.
