2/5 flop bottom set.

Hero Decided to limp with 6♠️6♣️ UTG, MP1 limp, SB raises 15, BB, hero, and MP1 call.

Flop J♦️7♦️6♥️

SB and BB check. Hero(1000 effective before hand) bets 50, MP1 raise to 200 (1000 effective before hand.) SB folds, BB goes all in for 120.

What’s my play?

    Any history with MP1? Have they also been limping middle pairs from EP?

    The board is pretty wet and given pre-flop action I would think that both BB and MP1 are betting draws or two pair here, though BB in particular could have a better set than you.

    I'm probably looking to get it in now or on the turn, either by 3betting the flop to $500 and calling off a jam, or calling flop and intending to get it in on most turns. I'd be concerned with any, ten, seven or five.
    The thing I don't like about just calling flop is that it could easily go check-check on turn allowing MP1 to get a free card to realize their equity. I'd lean towards 3! on the flop.

    I agree a raise is order - MP1 could be raising here with AJ/KJ type hands looking for fold equity vs draws as well as draws themself. You don't block any draws, so we should be looking for value.

    As @Crux mentioned, a raise to $500 here seems legit as stack sizes vs the action make anything else really awkward. We can't expect draws to call a jam here, so I concur with the sizing intending to call off or jam a brick turn.

    My guess is that if you just call flop and check turn, V will check back if he has a J or some draw. Since you don’t want to give the draws two free cards, I think you should probably raise the flop.

    A min click on flop will create a 66% pot-sized shove on the turn. This seems best to incentivize a J to call flop, while leaving enough behind to deny simple draws from chasing with the right odds on blank turns.

    Thank you for the feedback, I truly appreciate it. I like the raise to 500 to continue to charge draws and call off. I did get lost a little and shoved, thinking I needed to charge draws/ combo, but thought if I was going with the hand I should go all in. Anyway Villian has pocket 77.
