      Final Pot: $41.32

      My thoughts:
      - Preflop I call his 3bet in position for set value. I believe he has a better hand than mine so I would have to be very careful with an over-pair post-flop.

      - On the flop I catch my set but the board is triple-suited. I think the only hand he could 3bet with and have the flush is A :club: K :club: but there are plenty of one club hands so I need to protect. So shove on flop?

      - Even with the shove he has to call $13.41 to win $41.32 = 32% pot odds. I can't really protect properly but I am probably ahead so I drag the money into the pot regardless?

      Pre-flop play is fine I believe, as you are in position.

      When you catch your set in a board like this, there's nothing else you can do, besides shoving. If he's on a draw, you're ahead. Even against a 15 outs draw (with K :club: Qx for example), you're ahead.

      If he's on a made flush, you still got many outs against him. So, pretty easy push IMO.
