      Called preflop for set value. Plenty of people come along. I catch the set. How worried should I be about someone holding QK?

      I thought since I have some outs it was better to protect my hand against anyone with two clubs or a queen or a king. And to get the money in. Plus a big bet could easily be AK, AQ, AJ, AT. Plenty of hands I have crushed.
