      Hello!

      Is it ok to play a set this way? I didn't want to squeeze preflop because of sufice fold equity of loose MP3 limper.

      His stats are: 40/0/100/0,0/-/8,7/8/0/83 (VPIP/PFR/FtoCB/3b/Fto3b/AF/WTSD/W$SD/Hands)


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $12.19
      MP2:
      $10.89
      MP3:
      $11.79
      CO:
      $11.68
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB (Hero):
      $10.29


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4, 4.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.3) J, T, 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.21, BB folds, MP3 calls $0.21.

      Turn: ($0.72) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP3 raises to $1.20, Hero raises to $3.21, MP3 calls $2.01.

      River: ($7.14) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, MP3 calls $3.00.

      Final Pot: $13.14.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, fours(4 4).
      MP3 shows a pair of queens(Q Q).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, fours(4 4).

      Hello Alleen86,

      Yeah, your play is totally fine I even don't mind. And just completing preflop ain't wrong either, we don't have to always raise it up. Against those stations we can as well consider just taking the odds and call for set value.

      Best regards.
