      Nh, I usually just bet/bet/bet here.

      You should bet bigger on the flop though, half potsize is a minimum imo.

      nh !

      preflop: on NL10 its no big mistake to limp first in with a low pocket, but when you get more experienced or move up in limits, you should raise it first in.

      a set is a very strong hand, even in fullring games. So most of the time you should go for value with a set, of course sometimes it depends on the board and the opponents.

      In this case you have easy valuebets on Flop (should bet around 0.30$) and Turn, and on this board you would have had a valuebet on the river as well, no matter which card the river brings.
