      I decided to take a different line than my usual Lead or Re-Raise Flop when I hit a Set. This board is safe for my Set to give him a free card, I hope he improves slightly, or thinks my check-call is weak so he makes another move with weak hands. I then make my move on the Turn. What are bet sizes like? Should I ever play it like this again? or just stick to my usual Lead out the flop/Re-raise depending on Position.

      MP: $6.84 (68.4 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)
      BTN: $11.07 (110.7 bb)
      SB: $12.69 (126.9 bb)
      Hero (BB): $20.57 (205.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2 2
      MP calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.30, MP calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) Q 2 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP checks, CO bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80, MP folds

      Turn: ($2.85) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.50, Hero raises to $4.40, CO calls $2.90

      River: ($11.65) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $4.40, CO calls $4.40 and is all-in

      Results: $20.45 pot ($0.92 rake)
      Final Board: Q 2 9 7 K
      CO showed http://static.pokerstrategycdn.com/forum/images/space.gifA Q and lost (-$10 net)
      Hero showed 2 2 and won $19.53 ($9.53 net)

      Hello MattDenness,

      Check/Raising the turn is much stronger than raising it right on the flop. So therefore I would already Check/Raise the flop if I went for that. We are OOP and we don't want him to see Check behind the turn. ;)

      Best Regards.
