      We flop the set, unfortunately only one broadway card out there. Villain leads out and I decide to call. I figure this would let weakish hands carry on rather than raising. I mean, if I raise, I surely only get calls from AQ, KQ, maybe JQ, then QQ and 88.

      Set turns to quads. Now how do I extract max value? Villain bets out, I raise here to try to get the pot bigger, and hoping to face a re-raise, but villain flats. Again, if I raise bigger, only TPGK comes along?

      Should we be 3betting bigger here? I know the idea is to get where I can shove the river, but wouldn't that require a scare sized bet here?

      Should have bet bigger here really if the villain has made it all this way, but no draws have come in, and I can't see any hands out there that villain could go broke with. I bet under half pot to try to get some thin value

      Any thoughts on how to get more value from this hand without scaring the villain off?

      Since there are no flushdraw I would also call on the flop. I need to have reads against player to raise there- since I don´t need to protect my hand I would prefer keep in his bluffs. Turn min-raise is fine, but since he would likely call also 1$ bet then I would raise a little larger.

      You can consider shoving river, but since 8 is also scary card for Qx, then betting 1.5$ would be a little better option

      best regards,
