      Hero (BTN): $24.01 (240.1 bb)
      SB: $16.68 (166.8 bb)
      BB: $15.41 (154.1 bb)
      UTG: $18.02 (180.2 bb)
      MP: $5.94 (59.4 bb)
      CO: $21.41 (214.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 3 3
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $0.60, BB folds, Hero calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.30) 6 3 A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.90, Hero raises to $2.40, SB raises to $4, Hero raises to $23.41 and is all-in, SB folds

      How do I get maximum value from my set?

      If I could play this hand again I would still reraise his bet on the flop but call his 3b with the plan of shoving the turn if he bets or bet 1/2 pot if he checks.

      As played what do you think about the size of my flop reraise?

      Raising Flop is fine but you can call flop and raise turn or just call his min3bet on the Flop. IMO it's more of a polarized line, meaning he either has air or something strong. I doubt he takes this line with a draw.

      Thus I really see no reason to reraise here. When we raise and shove here we either rep some semibluffs, air or sets, which is more or less a really narrow range. So I call the 1.50 reraise and then call the turn again if he bets sufficiently large, then we can call his river shove or just shove ourselves.
