      UTG = 45/18/2/20 in 11 hands
      MP = 33/3/2.5/0 in 30 hands
      VP/PF/AF/WTSD

      Pre flop I get pot odds of 5.5:1 where I need 7:1. With some implied odds I think I have a +EV play in the long run.

      On the flop I hit the set and decide to xr trying to get the maximum value. If I xc I could'n go all in if he xb the turn and if I db the flop I problably wouldn't get raised.

      Was it the best play or is there a better way to play this hand?

      tx! =)

      Generally, I think nut fullhouse would slowplay on this board.
      So this raise seem to be excellent because someone think it is bluff.

      Which is better play?

      Hey

      If UTG & MP2 are remotely liking to fold anywhere then why dont you squeeze? Active play trumps passive plays almost always. You think you have a lot of implied odds but a minraise & a call implies mostly a wide weak range.

      So why do you check/raise this flop? Except JJ+ or a 3xx, what else is calling you? I would check/call and lead the Turn mostly hoping that my opponent connect the Turn and can't fold

      So the Pot is $9 on the Turn and your stack is $16 which is pretty easy to get all-in on the River

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Nice. In this specific spot I wouldn't be confortable squeezing a 45/18 and a 33/3 for bluff. I think these kind of opponents won't fold enough but I'll pay more attention in spots where I can squeeze profitably.

      Post flop I'll adapt my game and play as you said. I think you're right. I'm scaring many weaker hands with my xr. What if I had a bigger stack (100bb i.g.)? Should I still play like this (since I wouldn't be able to go all in without raising the flop)?

      tyvm! :)

      No the same thing applies to 100bb play because of the board & their ranges.

      The only variable you changed is your effective stack while everything is the same
      So i am mostly looking to acquire more funds on the Turn or River
