      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)   

      0.25/0.50 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 3:diamond: , 3:heart:
      Hero raises to $2.00, 3 folds, BB raises to $6.00, Hero calls $4.00.

      Flop: ($12.25) 3:club: , 6:club: , 7:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $7, Hero calls $7.00.

      Turn: ($26.25) A:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $18, BB raises to $47.42 (All-In), Hero raises to $32.00 (All-In).

      River: ($110.67) Q:diamond:

      Final Pot: $110.67

      My reasoning for calling instead of protecting at flop :
      I felt that I have a very high fold equity if I raised this low board. Given a fold equity that high, I slowcalled my set here. Protection would have probably earned 19.25 $ (pot at moment)
      On a blank river, I was gonna start betting/raising for added value. Else, call for for FH value (WA/WB)

      Badly played ? I forego protection some other times as well, when I feel that the FE is too high on a flop and my opponents is a player who often stack me if they hit later. The flop bet looked to much like a standard "my cards missed this board" cbet anyway.

      Calling is fine.
      I might probably min-raise:D
      because there might be a lot of scared cards to BB (if he holds pp).
      So I´m happy to get all-in on the flop.

      looks fine. i'd probably raise/call, or bet/call OOP, but a call is fine too IMO, as long as you're not stacking off unimproved to another club and villain plays it obviously.

      btw, 2 outs isn't worth protecting against

      Your slowplay is fine here. Your hand looks pretty much like a draw or a float. I really like it. Sometimes the flush turns which is ugly, but most of the times you get more value this way.
