      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8:heart: , 8:club:
      UTG2 raises to $0.08, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08, CO folds, Hero calls $0.08, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      SB checks, UTG2 bets $0.28, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $1.60

      Is there any extra value in slow playing in this sort of situation? Or should I raise smaller?

      I raised him pretty large thinking he could have AQ, QQ+. QQ being the only hand that has me beat. Him betting into 4 opps would represent this sort of range right?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      On such dry board I sometimes even slowplay my set and raise it on turn, depending on the opponent, for example in this case he is pretty passive and doesn't go to showdown that often, only 20% so you could easily consider Calling here and raising likely on turn.

      Best regards.
