      I feel that I could have bet more as I had a set on the flop but I thought he was seeking a flush and he seemed quite weak after the river so I just decided to value bet. maybe I should have bet more after the river?

      Hi cekpirus88,
      i hope you don't mind me evaluating your hand for my homework, this is still quite new to me so i hope its ok, thanks. :D

      Preflop: Personally i'm not keen on the min-raise, if i'm going to play PP's then i'm definately going to 3-bet or 4. Obviously if i dont hit i dont continue.

      Flop: now was time to get aggressive 2/3 pot maybe, with the draw out there you need to protect your set and be aggressive

      Turn: definately a pot size bet here would be good, you then take away the opponents odds of making his draw i would definately make it too expensive for him.

      River: The board pairing wasn't great but it's unlikely the Button raised on the flop with middle pair so go ahead and bet 2/3 or pot-size at this point.

      cheers bro :D

      Hello cekpirus88,

      Preflop: What the heck is with the min-raise? It's just hurts my eyes. :D Either 3bet it normal way or just Call!

      As played
      Postflop: 3bet it right on flop and get it in, no point to slowplay like you did. What's the difference in betting the turn or 3betting it on flop? While at the same time you avoid coming any scare card and if he raises you then most likely wants to go broke anyways.

      Best Regards.
