      On the flop I dont think I would bet out here as anyone that calls has good equity against you (TT, JJ, 66, two pair hands, and straight draws). If an opponent behind you bets out after you check the flop he generally only has a few hands that you beat such as maybe 88. Anyway as played I would definitely bet much bigger on the flop as you are giving villains great odds.

      On the turn I think your bet size is still a little small as you are not charging flush/straight draws enough.

      On river I would definitely bet closer to two thirds pot. If he has 68 and raises then so be it but he may also raise with a weaker set and maybe even 2-pairs

      Hi,

      I think you played your hand quite standard. Since UTG didn´t bet he very likely does not have better hand, so you can bet there for value, after hitting set I would also bet turn and river for value

      best regards,
