You do want him in the hand, but you want him to make a mistake to stay in the hand. Here he had to call $10 for the chance to win ~ $100, although less than ideal those odds
are good enough to see the flop and hope for the set. If you make the raise to as small as $20, he's making a mistake if he calls because now he's only getting 7 to 1.
