What's Your Move?

Information about villian: He bought in short to the table and played what I would call a weak/passive game. Small bets at orphan pots, seldom re-raising pre-flop.

I called the pre-flop re-raise hoping for a smooth call from UTG and that's what I got. I also hit my set. I don't understand the smooth call of my turn raise. He either has KK, QQ, AT or a complete bluff. At least that's what I put him on. QQ makes the most sense - it fits a pre-flop re-raise and a check on the K-high flop. The raise I made on the turn may be regarded as a bluff, so calling with QQ there isn't a bad play either. It hit the "TIME" button on this one. I'll post next with what I did.

The taunting for me to call was certainly an influence on my action.
