      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 3:heart: , 3:diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, BU calls $0.30, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($1.05) 6:heart: , 4:diamond: , 3:club: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.8, CO calls $0.80, BU calls $0.80.

      Turn: ($3.45) 2:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BU checks.

      River: ($3.45) 8:diamond: (3 players)
      Hero bets $1, CO calls $1.00, BU raises to $18.53 (All-In), 2 folds, BU gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $6.45

      Obviously I flop a set so make a C-bet (could proibably be more into 2 players.)

      On the turn the 2 comes which I'm not overlay happy about. I feel like after calling the flop here players can have 44 55 66 77 88 99 TT JJ and some other combs like A5s 34s 45s 56s 67s A6s. I decide to check anyway as I would hate to get raised in this spot and both players check it back.

      River comes an 8 which isnt the best card for me, but I decide to make a very small bet for value here. I figure there are a ton of hands that might call (A6s, 56s, 34s, 77, 99, TT, JJ) and very few that could raise. I think its almost impossible for this guy to show up with a bluff here but I have underepped my hand by checking the turn so should I just call it off?

      I actually like how I played this hand, and am pleased I had the discipline to fold here. Maybe I've made a huge mistake?

      Hello Meemawuk,

      I'd definitely Bet the turn as well. It's not that likely that he has there a straight. But while we could still even get value from worse hands like overpairs/draws.

      But as played of course there is no other way to play the hand, we are beat. :)

      Best regards.
