      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.67)
      BB ($1.17)
      UTG ($2.02)
      UTG+1 ($2)
      UTG+2 ($2.21)
      MP1 ($0.92)
      CO ($1.77)
      Hero ($2.04)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: T:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, CO calls $0.06

      FLOP ($0.19) 8:club: 3:diamond: A:club:

      CO bets $0.16, Hero raises to $0.38, CO folds

      During this hand against an unknown, I raised to see if he hit a set, assuming he would call with pair of Aces, and raise with a set. do you think I'm chasing away too many weaker hands here?

      In his l/c range I see alot of pocket pairs and low Ax hands, also XcXc hands

      Hi Painterman,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: l don' t really like your statement that says I'm raising to see if he has a set. Why? Because we raised so small that villain could be induced to rebluff.

      Since he bet close to pot which is what we would bet anyway (if checked to) I would call here and play the turn.

      With a raise you may isolate yourself against the better part of his range which contains a fair amount of better hands or hands with a lot of equity.
