      Hello

      What do you think of this hand?

      UTG2 is regular, MP1 is fish

      I decided to slow play the set on the flop (that didn't looked much drawy to me), and flat called the small bet of the fish to try to keep the others on the pot. My plan was to raise the turn, but when the 10 hit and the regular donked strong, i thought i might be behind and decided to call and wait river on hope of fullhouse, when the regular jams the river strongly and even gets called by the fish, i thought i was way behind.

      What do you think? Was this a good spot for a slow play? Or should I have raised the river straight away as a 10 or a J could hurt me, and be happy with playing with the fish?

      Raise turn, it's way to drawy.. get it in there vs the fish.

      Here the problem is UTG.After the flop was kinda 1:7 call for him he can have TT,KJ,J8 easily and he would play exactly this way on turn and it becomes somehow really hard here.I'd call turn and call river only when i improve.

      I´d personally would raise flop to 5$, sincer I´d like to get more moeny in the pot
      Also I´d likely shove turn, once MP1 is calling turn bet I doubt he is going to fold your turn shove and now you should also protect your hand
      River fold seems fine- don´t think UTG would shove there worse hands

      Do you think i should worry with protecting already on the river (any T or J can hurt me)?

      well I wouldn´t worry too much protecting on the flop. It is very likely you´re way ahead there and can shove on any turn card
