      Final Pot: $4.12

      Hero wins $4.02 ( won +$0.96 )
      BB lost -$1.06

      Basically, that board scared the hell out of me: He was in the bb and could easily have been defending his blinds with SC. Didn't have any stats on him either. Should I have reraised on the flop? Probably should have made my cbet a bit bigger to defend against draws? Turn and river I decided to go to a showdown as cheap as possible and his turnbet was on the low side so that I could afford myself a call there? I probably overbet the river there, but I figured that if I had drawn out on him, a straight would pay me off anyways.
      I got pretty lost in that hand :/

      a set is a very strong hand . always look to put al the money in with 100 bb stacks on any flop when you got a set .
      you should bet pot on this drawy board . dont call his small raise . reraise it because he can do this with a draw and you need protection to your set and of course you want as much money in as you can . then you can bet turn bet river for value . as played i like donking the turn because if he has the straight or flush he will shove . if he has a 2 pair kind of hand he will call otherwise he will check behind
