      Hey guys. I was wondering if slowplaying a set is considered a crime. I win my biggest pots when i do it.

      Full Tilt - $0.05 NL RUSH - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $7.30
      UTG: $3.00
      UTG+1: $4.95
      MP: $5.09
      Hero (MP+1): $9.79
      LP: $3.95
      CO: $2.07
      BTN: $8.19
      SB: $1.87

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 3:diamond: 3:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.17, fold, Hero calls $0.17, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.15, fold

      Flop: ($0.56, 3 players) 3:club: 9:spade: J:club:
      SB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.56, Hero calls $0.56, SB calls $0.56

      Turn: ($2.24, 3 players) A:heart:
      SB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($2.24, 3 players) A:club:
      SB bets $1.14 and is all-in, fold, Hero calls $1.14


      SB shows A:spade: J:heart: (Full House, Aces full of Jacks) (PreFlop 47%, Flop 2%, Turn 9%)
      Hero mucks 3:diamond: 3:heart: (Full House, Threes full of Aces) (PreFlop 53%, Flop 98%, Turn 91%)
      SB wins $4.22

      Hello ruvince,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the play:
      I guess I'd just raise it right on flop to protect from so many draws. As played definitely bet the turn, you still get value from a lot of hands there. And river is likely Call, not much you can do.

      Best regards.

      Hi there veriz,

      Thanks for your kind words.

      I guess it's my greediness to blame )
      So in a situation when the board on flop doesn't offer any draws, it's okay to slowplay?

      Yep likely, if you know that you are getting the stacks in on river anyways.
