      Hi,

      I just need advice if I played this hand good? I was expecting SB to have flush draw, but never thought he hit straight already

      raise flop bigger to ~.18-.22.
      then just bet turn for ~.50 and call off.
      sucks that he turned a straight and you made top set.
      just bad luck is all

      Hello Crixus26,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Against a min-raise you want to 3bet it bigger to 4x.
      Postflop: Raise the flop bigger and also bet the turn bigger. Though I am not planning to get away whilst the guy could as well have worse sets.

      Best Regards.
