I prefer just calling on that flop, mainly because of the guy to act after you. It's a lot to commit with an unknown still in there.

Edit: My mistake. I misread the history. Just calling is still an option, but I don't like it as much.

I don't hate the raise, but it's a very bad sign if he shoves. I'd put it at a best case coin flip, and you're not getting great pot odds. I'd insta-fold this.

Against a guy like this I'm probably shipping it in, but this looks like standard set mining. Without the read it's a standard fold. With the read I grudgingly call because I expect to see 99+ and 89/79/56 etc on top of the sets/two pairs.

FWIW - this happened in my live game last night almost exactly.

Villan#1 insta-called with trips. Villan#2 called but didn't make the draw.
Hero lost with KK.

Move up to 1000NL where they respect your raises:D

I think I would probably fold here personally although I think its pretty close, and cant fault you for calling. his range is so wide he could have a lower overpair, a set, straights, and some combo draws, his aggression factor certainly puts semibluffs in his range

I folded my kings, but i'm not quite sure how good a fold this was.

I think that if I knew villain would stay at the table for long enough afterwards, I would have called, because i would get my money back in the long run from such a super aggro player. And i'd pay for the information.
