      Everest - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP: $4.92
      MP+1: $8.46
      LP: $9.96
      CO: $1.97 67/3/39 70h
      BTN: $1.52
      SB: $4.19
      Hero (BB): $1.99
      UTG: $3.62
      UTG+1: $6.14

      SB posts SB $0.03, Hero posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.08) Hero has 8:heart: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.05, fold, fold, CO calls $0.05, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.22, MP calls $0.17, CO calls $0.17

      Flop: ($0.69, 3 players) 8:club: 4:diamond: J:club:
      Hero bets $0.23, fold, CO calls $0.23

      Turn: ($1.15, 2 players) 3:club:
      Hero bets $0.26, CO raises to $1.52 and is all-in

      so, what's the line here?

      Lesson to learn from here is that bet on the flop is way too small and against such loose player i could have bet even the pot?

      Hey Malcolm,

      The line you should take is bet bigger on the Flop. Betting 1/3 pot just asks for disasters because you allow him to hit something that beats your set. as you can see the Turn is ugly but since we didn't protect we should bet big again. Now we get 2:1 so that is insufficient to call due full house odds

      Folding a set on the Turn is a sign that one has to improve his betsizing ;)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
