      Preflop: It's tough to get enough value for a flopped set out of position versus weak ranges. Can we ever squeeze here, or is calling ok especially give that we are multiway?

      Flop, turn: I think that if I raise villain is very likely just to fold, so I get more value by letting him barrel and hopefully hitting his top pair or something. Ok there's a small possibility he has 2 hearts, but I will just have to take that chance.

      River: kind of the same, donking would just look too suspiciously strong so I have to hope he will fire again.
