    What do you think about this hand? on the river I thought my opponent has a set.

    Hi torrr11!

    95s is nowhere near strong enough to call a raise with preflop... muck it.

      Fold pre, but since you flopped a straight, you should do everything in your power to build a big pot. Since there's no flush or paired board, it's a snap-call on the river.

      Be aware however, that 95 makes a lot of "non-nut" hands, which means it can be very costly. If villain had shown up with T9 (a much better hand than 95), you're losing your stack. You were lucky here that villain overvalued one pair, but when you get stacks in vs the nuts, you'll learn not to play trash.
