Default I can\'t get away from top set here can I?

Villain is a loose, awful fish.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (6 max, 5 handed) internettexasholdem.com

Button ($209.35)
Hero ($212.80)
BB ($134)
UTG ($197)
MP ($127.10)

Preflop: Hero is SB with K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]. Hero posts a blind of $1.
<font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to $4</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero (poster) raises to $11</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, Button calls $8.

Flop: ($26) Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets $25</font>, Button calls $25.

Turn: ($76) 9[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

Hero bets 76, villain min raises, hero pushes.

Anyone would call the allin because there isn't much left behind.

Other than re-raising more preflop, I don't know how else you would play it.

Is checkcalling the turn awfull here? (you will then give him the oppurtunity to represent a flush while maintaining potsize. If his bets are not too big you can get a showdown too) I'm really not sure.. If the pot was smaller I would definetely bet since it would then be more room to boat up if his betting/calling suggested that he has a flush, and you could stack him if you got there and get away if you didn't.

What about betting 40-50 instead? This should leave a little more room (I do realize villain is a calling fish and that you want to max value)

Flame away~

If he TRULY is a fish(meaning typically very passive), then I fold to the mini-raise. In my experience I've found I'm usually beat in these spots more often than not. If others disagree, I'd love to hear it. I just don't see a fish mini-raising something like AdQx here. The ONLY probable hand that he may donk raise this is QQ. AA seems unlikely, as most fish re-raise here. I think it's much more probable that you see something fishy like AdTd, AdJd etc... just my two cents.

WTF for real?

you are getting better than 3 to 1 to call the min-raise

It's my opinion that sometimes it's better to deviate from the odds when it becomes abudently obvious you're beat. Like I said, if you've found you're ahead more than 25% of the time here I'd like to hear it. Perhaps I've just ran really bad in these spots over the last couple of years, but I've found against TRULY passive fish, I'm beat here more than 75% of the time.

If you are someone who only plays the odds, you are absolutely correct, at least a call is in order.
