      Not much to say here, I hit a set on the flop, tried a small bet to lure him. Lured him. Ended up All-in.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO:
      $5.14
      BU (Hero):
      $2.13
      SB:
      $5.10
      BB:
      $4.60
      MP1:
      $5.00
      MP2:
      $5.07
      MP3:
      $6.47


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5, 5.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB folds, BB calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.42) 5, 8, 7 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB raises to $0.35, Hero raises to $0.70, BB raises to $3.35, Hero calls $1.23.

      Turn: ($5.7) J (2 players)


      River: ($5.7) K (2 players)


      Final Pot: $5.7.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5h 5d).
      BB shows three of a kind, sevens(7s 7c).

      BB wins with three of a kind, sevens(7s 7c).

      Is it a bad beat or should I have played it differently?

      Peace,
      Mircea

      Hello M1rCea,

      Bet the flop near pot, I don't like the min-bet at all. Otherwise I don't like the min-3bet either. Make it normal size at least $1,50 and go broke there. Not much you can do, just a cooler.

      Best regards.
