Yes and No
Yes if you think you can make him fold .. so say you call with 55 YOU ARE NOT SETMINING his CO range is far too weak to call, hit sets and then get stacks in. He wont stack off often enough to justify the call. So you need to look for some spots where you can make him fold. Now the thing to remember is his CO range should be wide so really we only have to get him to fold his missed hands on the flop.
No if you dont feel confident in making a few plays.
Calling a CO raise with a small PP is not the same as calling an UTG raise with a small PP. When UTG opens we dont feel that we can make him fold the majority of his range, but we do feel his range is tight enough that he will often stack off when we hit a set (HERE WE ARE SETMINING).
setmining =/= calling with a PP and hoping to hit a set.
Setmining = calling with a PP and hoping to hit a set against a player whose range is so tight we expect him to stack off the majority of the time we hit our set.
