      Hello oozman,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Guess it shouldn't be really wrong to fold it actually on flop. While we had the plan to play for the set mostly. It's just safer play. But overall of course you can peel once and reevaluate it on turn.

      Best regards.
