      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 4:club: , 4:spade:
      Hero calls $1.00, 3 folds, SB calls $0.50, BB checks.

      Flop: ($3.00) 4:diamond: , J:diamond: , 7:spade: (3 players)

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows three of a kind, fours (4c 4s)
      BB shows three of a kind, sevens (7d 7h)

      BB wins with three of a kind, sevens (7d 7h)

      I have found a serious flaw in my game. I am too quick to make a decision about what hand my opponent has. Once I put him on a certain hand I dont re-evaluate it according to how the hand progresses.
      In this hand I decided that because villain checked in the big blind, he must be on the flush draw. Big mistake!
      Not sure I could have played this much worse.

      Raise pf.
      I'd also put all my money with set. Unlucky.

      well the board is drawy and there are only low cards out there. So if I knew my opponent is agressive, I would play it the same way. If you know he is a nit, then you can possibly find a fold.

      Raise preflop to $4, go broke on the flop!

      I don't think I could ever find a fold on this flop

      yes I think an open raise would at least have given me some information about what he is holding.
      My main point though is that I didnt even consider the possibility of him having a bigger set as I had already made my mind up that he was on the draw.
      Thanks for the analysis, much appreciated.

      nobody fights like that for a limped pot with FD.
      in general, stdrts for limped pots should be way tighter
      for instance, its often a mistake to go broke with bottom 2pairs

      the only hand you can beat is J7, but i doubt he will play it like that with a bit deeper stacks

      might be a fold against passive opponents

      There is no problem getting it all-in if you´d raised pf, but since it is limped and you don´t hold the nuts then I also don´t like getting stacked here, since BB would probably call his flushdraw and probably two pair.
