      no hud, speed.
      MP reggish 23/17
      CO tight reg 16/13.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10)
      Hero ($10.92)
      UTG ($4.30)
      UTG+1 ($11.96)
      CO ($10)
      BTN ($11.25)

      Dealt to Hero 5:spade: 5:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.35, CO calls $0.35, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.25

      FLOP ($1.10) J:diamond: 2:club: 5:heart:

      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.82, CO calls $0.82, Hero calls $0.82

      TURN ($3.56) J:diamond: 2:club: 5:heart: 2:spade:

      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $1.78, CO calls $1.78, Hero raises to $4.90, UTG+1 folds, CO calls $3.12

      RIVER ($15.14) J:diamond: 2:club: 5:heart: 2:spade: 3:spade:

      Hero bets $4.85 (AI), CO calls $3.93 (AI)

      Hero shows 5:spade: 5:club:
      (Pre 82%, Flop 95.7%, Turn 2.3%)

      CO shows 2:heart: 2:diamond:
      (Pre 18%, Flop 4.3%, Turn 97.7%)

      CO wins $21.47


      On the flop there are not obvious draws so I go for slowplay since UTG might have some overpair which he would continue fo bet on the turn. But if I c/r he might fold it.

      On turn I was thinking about c/shoving but in the end decided for c/r. I think latter looks even stronger although both actions look mighty strong against 2 opponents with action going like this.

      When CO calls me I can't find his hand but hoping he has some QQ, KK.

      Is in case like this ok to slowplay my set on dry board like this?

      Hi Yax,

      With two opponents we can look to put in a small raise. After all they are rarely on a weak hand.

      UTG may have a bluff every now and then because the board is dry but CO is at least on a pair so I think a small raise would do wonders before some action killer cards come down.

      HU I'd be inclined to call more often.

      As played there's nothing we can do and we should expect Jx/overpairs to call.
