      UTG+1 wins $19.12

      Preflop- I try to keep some fish in the pot with a monster like KK with 30c raise sizing

      Flop- My eyes light up as I hit top set and bid around 1/2 pot to keep both players in.

      Turn- Some super unlikely draws pop up so I return to normal raise sizing hoping to keep at least one fish in.

      River- I bet again for value and when he reraises I realize only 56, and A5 beat me. I thought he could potentially hold 56s as the second caller but unless it was 56d I don't see him calling the flop bet very often. I assumed I had a larger set and that maybe he spiked triple jacks on the river.

      Tough hand for me. :( Are there any spots where I misplayed ?

      Hello FlashDavin,

      Preflop: While OOP, vs 3 limps I'd raise it even $0,40.
      Flop: CB size has a huge leak, you are giving way too good odds for any draw.

      As played
      Turn: You are 3way, so what makes you think that none of them couldn't have something like A5/56? But if you still want to protect then rather 2nd barrel it as well bigger.
      River: If he had any kind of set then most likely it would have raised earlier, therefore could as well be even a slowplayed hand as straight. At the best I'd just Call not ship over his raise being 200BB deep. It's still 50BBs left.

      Best Regards.
