      Was this appropriate caution here? Normally I'm willing to stack off with bottom set, but he three barrelled into two other players which shows huge strength so I'm like 50% he as AK 50% he has a better set. Was this too cautious? I only acted this way out of superstition lol, 20 hands ago this exact flop came and I stacked someone with KK set vs 99 set, turned quad K's. But now I'm thinking pot control may just be +EV with bottom set even at NL2, not so much middle and top, I might lean towards caution and a medium pot size with bottom set from now on (when protecting from draws is not a priority as in the case above)
