      Hi psydreamer,

      Preflop: On the BTN we can steal with these hands so it looks good.

      Flop: With 2p we can get value from many worse hands so a valuebet is good, 2/3 pot size is also good.

      Turn: The K may scare away 2p/3p hands but we can still get value from worse A so we can bet.

      River: This is closer because now AQ also beats us and that makes Ax hands that don't have 2p be afraid in some spots. If villain is not a fish (loose player) then we can even consider checking back OR making a smaller bet like 1/2 pot (and folding).

      The fact that he shows up with a set it's a cooler. Because, I am assuming, you can see him calling with worse, otherwise our bets don't make sense.
