It's a trivial really. It's unlikely that villain would just limp with high pair JJ, QQ or KK, in fact i would completely exclude a possibility that villain sits with set here. So he might be having a flush draw or two pairs. Here's a classic example where there's no right or wrong, call and fold here are equally right decisions. Anyway i hope this hand helped you to get to know villain for other hands to come, it's a good starting point.


Hi, in this case for me it was a good fold (taking into account that I don't have information about supervillain) and it was good to fold because after a raise x5 the villain should do something like QQ, KK, AA or AK the villain should be very sure of his hand to make that raise on the flop, I repeat good fold
