      should have bet more on the flop and turn.
      Wasn't sure if I should value bet with the third heart on the board.

      Bet more flop (1,5 - pot is now 4,95), than you can bet turn about 4 and easy shove on river.
      As played - you can valuebet here smallish - 2 - 3 $ , he will call it without a flush.

      Bet more on the flop!! It is important to remember that sets are not invulnerable, not to mention that you want maximum value from them. If you bet 3/4th potsize on flop and turn it doesn't matter what card comes on the river, you have to shove anyway. He can call you with worse hands like KQ or AK for example, so you don't always run into a flush.
