      Hi Krishjanis!

      You should raise bigger on the flop. You have to make it expensive for opponent to see the next community card. And 1/2 of the pot way to good price. I tend to overbet the pot with set on that wet board because they just dont fold their draws and TPGK+ hands... ...Didn't look the results...

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Pretty bad play here, if you want to even donk the flop then you should bet a lot bigger but I'd be more towards Check/Raising in this spot cause most likely you will see a bet while being in multiway pot. But of course we ain't folding.

      Best Regards.
