      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00/$2.00BB (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      SB ($30.50)
      BB ($329.20) (Hero)
      UTG ($180.00)
      UTG+1 ($195.40)
      UTG+2 ($113.80)
      MP1 ($492.25)
      MP2 ($202.50)
      MP3 ($16.35)
      CO ($81.75)
      Button ($238.25)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with T:diamond: , T:club:
      3 folds, MP1 raises to $8.00, 5 folds, Hero calls $6.00,

      Flop: T:heart: , 4:heart: , Q:spade: ( $17 )
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $10.00, Hero raises to $30.00, MP1 raises to $40.00, Hero raises All-In $321.2, 1 folds

      Final Pot: $385.20

      Ok, so I flop my set, against the preflop raiser, and check raise on a drawy board. He comes back with a min reraise. Unless I am against QQ, I am way ahead. I looked at his stack size, and dumped it all in now. He thought for a while, and folded. How much should I raise here for the best value?

      The first mistake was to make such a small raise to his small bet on the flop. I would raise here to 45-50$, remember, there is already almost 30 in the pot and stacks are pretty deep, you want to get most of your money in NOW ;)

      If he then min-raises, a shove isn't such a huge overbet like it was with your line.

      But if your line is to make smallish raises, than I would consider a normal sized 5-bet and not a shove, maybe sth. like 160$?

      I agree with Sebra. Your first raise is too small.
      1) If he has a draw, he could call with relative good oods + Position.
      2) You don´t get his money, being deep stacked, with a small raise.
      3) You could reraise villian preflop.

      Thanks guys.

      I don't know about preflop reraise oop with TT, I'm not even reraising IP with that yet. :)

      I will look at making larger bets when in these situations in future.

      I think just calling with TT is ok in full ring, in sh play on the other hand a 3-bet is standard play.

      i don´t play fullring, so i am not really sure.
      I think it depends on the stats of villian.
      If villian is loose, reraist should be okay.
