      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?
