For this table, I was figuring that anybody who raised preflop had a middle pocket pair or higher.  I placed Player 10 on SOMETHING but I didn’t feel threatened at this point.

Kim G calls $10
Player 2 folds
Player 3 folds
Player 4  folds
Player 5  folds

FLOP:  Th 6h Kd

Player 10  bets $6

What would you do here?  I basically had a straight draw and I had put Player 10 on a pocket pair.  I went ahead and raised him with the intent of folding if I were re-raised. 

Kim G raises $6
Player 10  folds

Kim G wins $32 uncontested
$3 raked.
