      Hi Vargan

      I would raise to $2.40 preflop ( 3 times the amount that MP3 raised) in order to get maximum value. Your flop play is of course good. I would have played the hand the same way. There is no way to fold top set on a monochrome board against just one opponent.
      If your opponent would have just called I would gone broke on any non club turn. If a club appears I just call if he bets the turn.
      Let`s take a look at the equliator analysis.

      Operation completed... 55,440 games processed in 0 seconds. Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 28.919 % 26.737 % 4.363 % 68.900 % TT-KK, AKs, AJs-ATs, KQs, JTs, ATo+, KQo, JTo
      Player 2: 71.081 % 68.900 % 4.363 % 26.737 % AhAs

      In this example I gave villain a very tight range. He might even play gut shot plus flushdraw hands this way.
      If you are just bad running maybe it helps to take a look at our psychology articles. For example this one: Downswing - a psycholgical consideration. But i am sure you will run better in the future.

      Best regards,
