Default Re: 2 pair vs. 2 loose opponents

This is a tough spot. His play -- calling 2 cold twice on the flop and then three-betting the turn, reeks mightily of a set, but could also be Kxd. (I discount AKd or K3d since the former would likely have been raised preflop, while the latter would have been raised on the flop.)

The problem is the presence of the LAG means that you don't know how expensive it will be to see it to the end, and you could be drawing dead or to one out.

That having been said, it takes more than a 3-bet in this spot to convince me that the button has a set, so I'm likely staying in. Having made that decision, I favor raising over calling and check-calling one bet on the river.
