      Typically I like to see 15:1 odds or better to set mine. Since the pot is laying 3:1 you need an additional 12:1 in implied odds to call. You have only 5000 in chips remaining so you have close implied odds with one player if you hit so I would go for it unless the BB is an aggressive defender as you can't stand a raise from them.

        The BB's stack is too short to do anything but call. No need to worry about a raise from him.

        I do think this is a good fold, because while you may have the right odds to set mine, you don't have the right situation. Overcalling a late position raise and call from the blinds with the intention of setmining is not a good plan. Unless the raiser's preflop range is really tight in LP, he's probably way too wide to pay you off if you even do hit a set.

        Now if the cutoff has been raising a lot, this may be a good spot for you to 3-bet. It's a squeeze play, and it is risky, but it's better than calling. If you're going to do it, you'll have to just shove. Can add an extra ~30% to your stack.

          This looks like a "target raise" of the BB, designed to get him to go all in.

          In that case, you are likely to be taking a set mining hand into what figures to be a "dry pot" (or near dry pot) situation.

          Action is typically light in dry pot situations, so a LOT of the implied odds value from a set mine goes away here for you.

          If you cannot count on solid implied odds to get more money into the pot if you spike, than a hand like 22 becomes a very weak hand indeed.

          Good fold.
