      preflop: I called for a set.

      BB min-bet, 2 call, I raise 2/3 pot.

      2 fold, 1 call/raise.

      his raise is not big, so I think he slowplay with a hand like 2 pair. I call

      I think on the flop the BB is the only one who could have a reasonable hand, because he could just be checking to the pre flop aggressor (which would be unwise, but not unheard of.) When the pre flop raiser checks and the other guy checks they're announcing they don't have Ax or a set. I would bet here to try and barrel UTG off JJ and QQ if i knew he was a reg, but because of his stack size just check behind as he could call you down lightly.

      MP3's turn raise makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I'd be suspicious, but still call and then raise all in on the river for value.

      Hello newsat,

      Flop: Actually I don't really like it to Bet here, ain't worth against 3 players. Just play fit/fold with your sets, don't have to play fancy moves or anything to play them profitable.
      Turn: You could even raise it bigger here, ~$0,90. As played and the MP3 min-raises us this could easily mean that he was slowplaying and often is that the case, could easily be 66 or something similar. Therefore I would continue cautiously, and just Call and reevaluate river.
      River: Calling should be doable here, hard to fold our set on such board. He could also have 2pairs which he slowplayed. So what did he have?

      Best regards.
