[NL2-NL10] NL10 55 Hiting a set

      After hiting a set, I decided not to check/raise him, expecting him to have an overpair, which he would maybe fold, or overcards, which he would mostly fold. The board didn't look dangerous, since he opened, so I decided to check/call all streets (even though I wasn't sure on the River).

      Is it better to check/raise the Flop or Turn? Maybe bet/fold the River?

      I think check-raising the flop is the best, since its not sure he will fold an overpair, he could put you on a draw, or draw+pair. Also, its not that sure that he will dubbelbarrel his overcards on this board, multiway, so I dont think you will loose value.

      Now I'm just speculating, but his AF is probably not actually 13. He is still quite aggressive, so perhaps you could give him a chance to raise him quite small so he might level himself to believe he has some foldequity?

      Otherwise I guess the check-raise turn-plan is good, though it looks even stronger than on the flop.
      Except for this turn; you will most likely never be called by anything you beat (I guess) so a check-raise on this turn would probably be to turn your set (!) in to a bluff.

      On the river not that much has changed but do you think he will bet with his overpairs after you have called 2 streets already? Unless he is a maniac I think he would check back his overpairs for a free showdown.

      3-way I think he would likely b/f his overpairs, so likely I would also take c/c flop, c/c turn, c/rai river or c/c flop, c/r turn line

      Since 4 is quite bad card for you I think you can´t really do much else than hope he is bluffing and c/c him down or if you don´t see him bluffing you can also c/f river

      best regards,
