      Dealt to Hero 6:spade: 6:diamond:

      Hero calls $0.02, UTG+1 raises to $0.04, fold, fold, MP2 raises to $0.06, fold, fold, SB calls $0.05, fold, Hero calls $0.04, UTG+1 raises to $0.08, MP2 calls $0.02, SB calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      FLOP ($0.34) A:diamond: 6:heart: 9:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero ???

      UTG+1 is 83/36/3.2, MP2 is 24/19/2.0

      I understand that against several opponents you donk... But, in this case, since there has been quite a bit of preflop 'min-agression', would it be justified to check/raise?

      Hi Elertar,

      You have a set so you bet the flop.

      You don't want to take chances with the check/raise becouse it has a flush draw on it and if a diamond comns on the turn you don't know where you stand.

      You want to bet directly on the flop and bet a little bigger to protect your hand against flush draws and better hands

      Kind regards,
      Bogdan

      Hello Elertar,

      In such a multiway pot there is no way I am going to Check it. Just donk it and protect your hand. You may easily even get raised if someone has an Ace and will easily get in int.

      Best regards.
