      I tried a set many times, and got a set on flop at last.

      Board was so dangerous, so I bet 100% pot size, then all folded.

      Should I bet less like 2/3 pot ?

      or should I check ?

      How can I extract most value when hitting a set ?

      Hello newsat,

      Yeah, I'd also have played the exact way and I rather prefer to bet it big, near pot than smaller, we have to protect from any kind of draw. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
