      I got a set on flop.

      I bet oop flop and turn because board are dangerous.

      My play is right ? or should I check on flop or turn ?

      or should I play another way ?

      Personally I bet a bit more on the flop, say 0.75, as the flop is not the best.
      I'd carry on betting on the turn as you will get called by worse hands.

      Obviously the hand is played in a straight forward ABC manner but that seems enough to beat NL10. Nice hand.

      I'd check raise flop and bet big on the turn. If i were to donkbet, i'd actually bet smaller to get bluff raised (pretty much any legit reg does this to a small donk).
      I think he was probably just peeling with small pair/gutter or floating with complete air, so i might as well check turn to get him to bluff.

      My 2 cents.

      Check raising is probably the best option, obviously wasn't paying enough attention when i replied :(

      Hello newsat,

      Yeah actually you could consider Check/Raising since you weren't PFA but definitely betting yourself is totally fine, although I would make the sizings bigger, way too smallish.

      Best regards.
