      Hard to play set on dry board. If you c/c flop and trying to c/r turn, he would often check behind. I think you played it fine. If the player is passive you could play bet flop, bet turn, bet river. Hard him to fold AK or AA
      I would also like to try out someday check/all-in:D , since it such a donk move, that I might even get a call from overpair or AK^^

      Its ok - if he flops nothing, the check may induce a bluff. If you c/r in such a spot he folds always...
