      Preflop - we have odds OOP and the villain isnt a stealer on our 44 hand read, so fine to draw at a set.

      Flop - I like to donk here. Sometimes it convinces villains we are on a weaker ace and they might be inclined to raise us. Sure, we lose a cbet from say 99-JJ on this flop, but when you hit a set you arnt here to win a cbet - you want to play for stacks. So donk-raise-shove for me.

      Turn - no checks, good bet, bet size is fine / slightly small. You are still playing bet-shove, villain may easily have two pair to pay us with here.

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Flop: Why do you Check/Raise so smallish? Definitely have to do it bigger, ~$0,35 would be mine which means pot size. :)

      As played
      Turn: I'd still bet a bit bigger here and also of course on flop to make it ready to shove on river. Or unless we have to overshove the river. :( But of course as played going broke.

      Best regards.
