      With a set on this flop I should have bet higher for protection. In this case I don't think I could have folded after the raise on the turn. But how should I have continued the hand, if MP2 would have had a deeper stack (say $10)?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T, T.
      MP2 calls $0.05, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.22, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.17.

      Flop: ($0.51) Q, J, T (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.38, MP2 calls $0.38.

      Turn: ($1.27) 8 (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.00, MP2 raises to $2.00, Hero raises to $3.00, MP2 calls $0.04.

      River: ($6.31) T (2 players)

      Final Pot: $6.31.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows four of a kind, tens(Ts Td).
      MP2 shows a straight, queen high(9s 7d).

      Hero wins with four of a kind, tens(Ts Td).

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      Against that stack there is not much to do. Although I'd bet bigger on flop like $0,45 for the board being so drawy. But if we were like 200BB deep then I might consider Calling the min-raise on turn and reevaluating on river.

      Best regards.
