Regular Folds Bottom Set On a Connected Board

Thought I’d break my blogging drought with a few interesting hands I’ve been stewing over the last few weeks. The first one comes from a 400NL game I was in and I saw this hand posted on one of the forums from the point of view of someone else. Turned out they folded a set here and I’m not quite sure what I think about that yet. In the thread it was posted in no reads were given, I had have some stats on the two important players in the hand though. Popo7ich is 34/18/1.2 over 191 hands and krischnu is 16/11/6.3 over 280 hands. After thinking about it a bit I reckon I’d stick my money in, just because Popo7ich is somewhat fishy looking and I can see krischnu happily check/raising wider range of combo draws than I can see if a nittier player led at that flop. That said, I think it is very close and folding can;t be too bad in a spot like this.
