I'll go with Matt's suggestion of flatting.
There is no such thing as protection when I am concerned. If there was I wouldn't get raped so often by random garbage which didn't have odds
to keep calling.
Theoretically in some kind of mythical long term I should get it all back I suppose, or maybe my grandchildren.
Anyway, the guy bets under half pot and it obviously allows him to draw cheaply. How this is maximizing value from a top set is beyond me. What, we are gonna shove river like total fish?
Basically by not raising you are just begging for it.
BTW if he donks with total air then you are not getting much more money from him.
