      Preflop: Hero is SB with 2:heart: , 2:spade:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB raises to $0.04, CO calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.12) 7:diamond: , 4:club: , 2:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.12, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB calls $0.18.

      Turn: ($0.72) 8:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.3, Hero calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.32) T:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks.

      Final Pot: $1.32

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2s)
      BB shows (As Ks)

      Hero wins with three-of-a-kind, deuces (2h 2s)


      Did I play this too passively? In a multiway limped pot (well ok, not technically limped, but the minraise preflop hardly counts) for some reason I was a bit scared of getting coolered set over set after villain bet/called the flop.

      Hello member001,

      First of all, I'd even raise bigger on flop ~$0,40. And otherwise why are you Checking the turn? I'd just Bet myself and try to get it in by river. You are basically giving away free cards while he could easily be even drawing or even having some overpair which wants to go broke.

      Best regards.
