      Absolutely. It is almost never unreasonable to jam a set on the flop.

      Examples I can think of where you would rethink automatically jamming sets on the flop -

      * TT on TJQ flop in a 3bet pot
      * 22 on 2s3s4s flop in a limped, massively multiplayer pot

      Basically it has to be a really extreme situation, and nearly always to get away from it you would have to be IP and see a lot of action in front of you. I think the only time I have *ever* cold folded a set on the flop was the top example - I was IP in a 3 way, 3 bet pot and there was a bet and a raise in front of me. I snap folded and watched AK showdown against QQ.

      Otherwise, ship it and ship it good. Your equity vs made straights or flushes is decent enough to get it in there and hope they have two pairs / top pair / pair and a draw / naked draws.

      I think 3bet shove on flop is prety fine.

      Hello Cooleyman,

      Nah, I doubt that I'd get it away from here. He may easily even do that with overpair, TP or whatsoever. Nice hand! Just don't be result oriented. :)

      Best regards.
