      What is your concern for not try to get it on flop? There is no need to slow play your set OOP and on a suited board. Your opponents showed some aggression and you should start to assume that he might want to play for stack.

      As played you can't really ch/raise that turn as the 5 completes a SD. And the spade on the river totally kills the action and the best you can do there is to ch/call. BTW if opponent had TT or JJ then you did not get enough value by calling the flop.

      The key issue of this hand is that you are OOP so even your top set can't extract much value from other hands.

      Hello Tombic,

      Flop: It's just horrible to play your set this way. Rather don't do it. You are practically giving him free card on turn and we don't want to see him Checking behind, which can even happen very often. Rather 3bet it on flop and go broke.

      As played
      Turn: That's the 2nd reason why we shouldn't Check/Call it to avoid seeing exactly such cards which may complete his range and he will hardly continue with Check/Raise here with a lot worse.
      River: Not much to add. :( Overview your play on flop.

      Best Regards.
