      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 3:spade: , 3:diamond:
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,30, BB folds, MP3 calls $1,05.

      Flop: ($2,85) T:spade: , 3:club: , 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,80, MP3 folds.

      I think this is a good spot for to slowplay my set (c/r). I can't think of a hand villain can have right now, only some draws. (I come from 10handed, and this is my first week on 6max.)

      Yeah, you really should check that flop.

      I would probably check call the flop, and try to c/raise the turn.

      I think this depends a lot on your table image, especially since its 6max so people see more of your postflop play. If you've made a lot of cbets lately then I'd still bet out and then check/raise the turn. So far in my experience people like to float me and bluff the turn if they think that I'm cbetting and they have hit any pair or even have a decent ace high.

      If you've played generally tight, then checking can induce some bluffs.

      Board is drawy- he might call you with any draw, any 9, T, small pp.
      I´d bet for value.
      After you raised pre-flop make contibet (if villain has anything then you need to build up big pot, if not then you´re giving him free cards to outdraw and pot stays small).
