      Poker Stars, $0.08/$0.16 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players


      CO: $16 (100 bb)
      BTN: $16.29 (101.8 bb)
      SB: $16.83 (105.2 bb)
      BB: $14.63 (91.4 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $16 (100 bb)
      MP: $28.77 (179.8 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 5 5
      Hero raises to $0.64, MP calls $0.64, CO folds, BTN calls $0.64, SB calls $0.56, BB folds

      Flop: ($2.72) 5 7 T (4 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.60, 3 folds

      The reason why I raised so big is because too many opponents and some of them could have straight draws here and I need to protect my set very badly.

      Results: $2.72 pot ($0.12 rake)
      Final Board: 5 7 T
      BTN mucked and lost (-$0.64 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.64 net)
      Hero mucked 5 5 and won $2.60 ($1.96 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$0.64 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Most likely I would still CB a bit smaller on the flop while this kind of Bet might look too big. And by the way on the flop we Bet, preflop we raise.

      Best Regards.
