      I hit the set 4 times today and played all of them the same way (xc F / db T / db R) but maybe I should've played some of them differently.

      I'll post them as set I, II, III and IV. This is the first one:

      Villain is 52/5 in 567 hands.

      He raises pre flop and I call for set minning. He's a station so I think he's got strong hands most of the time and my implied odds should be fine.

      On the flop I'm not worried about the flushdraw since the A :diamond: is on the board and I think he wouldn't raise K :diamond: Q :diamond: pre flop many times. So I just call the cbet.

      On the turn I donk bet so he can't check-behind and try to control the pot.

      He calls the donk bet on the turn so I push the river for value, mainly from AK and AQ.

      Was it well played? thx! :)

      This guy is never folding Ax unless the third hits (=action killers) so I just check/raise the Flop & bet/bet

      Alternatively if he is starting to check back the Flop , you just have to lead. I do not like check/call lead as you want to end the hand asap

      Ok. I hadn't think about the 3d :diamond: scaring him. But in the other hand woudn't I make him fold hands like KK an QQ with a xr? Maybe he calls me lighter with those kind of hands if I just xc Flop and lead Turn. Does it make sense?

      thx! :f_grin:

      Maybe you get like 0.5 streets of value more from QQ/KK (12 combos???) ? I just want to get fat value from all Ax he has before it is too late (>>12 combos)

      Also you give him straight out the odds (because you are often betting the River) to draw to his Flushdraw. He gets 2.5(+$2.35==your Rivershove):1 = 4.8:1

      Best regards,
