      What could I have done? Here I am experimenting with a new (to me) strategy that seems to make sense (http://www.pocketfives.com/2E6DD90F-2F4A-4A86-8CEC-ED8EB96D8E5D.aspx), but it feels like I did something wrong.

      I would bet more on the flop and on the turn to protect against flush draws. More something like 2/3 potsize ...

      Overall you played the hand well. Set over set just happens. No way you could get away from this hand.

      It was a pretty weird night... I hit quads twice in 10 minutes, and one of them lost to a king high SF. Some guy called my PSB on the turn with a gutshot, and hit the perfect card (1/2 remaining jacks, i had the other 2) to win the hand.

      Those are ugly beats ... but nevertheless with a set I will almost always put my stack in. Especially on the lower limits, where people overplay draws and TP a lot ...
