      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2(Hero) = ($4.69)
      MP1 = ($2.25)
      MP2 = ($5.10)
      MP3 = ($5.45)
      CO = ($1.82)
      BU = ($6.75)
      SB = ($5.20)
      BB = ($1.76)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 2, 2.
      Hero raises to $0.16, 5 folds, SB calls $0.14, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.36) J, T, 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.76) Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.56) 3 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.56, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $2.12.

      I'm really not sure whether I played this well or not, I know it's a set but it's also the lowest set there is. I'm already aware I shouldn't have raised pre-flop in that early position, that was actually a misclick.

      Nh, i think you can raise or even limp from early with a pair but not to often. Even if it's deuces.

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to post another hand in this thread just so I don't clutter up the place with my threads haha. I think this was the same person I was HU with in the last hand haha.

      Hi,


      Don't post multiple hands like that, we can handle the multiple threads but cluttering inside a thread is worse :p

      First hand i'd bet bigger all the way, JTx isn't that dry of a flop and you need to charge stuff like KQ for outdrawing you. The river is closer since you line looks extremely strong at this point so you can maybe make it a little less to ensure he still calls with Jx or a picked up Qx, but definitely bet more on the flop and turn.

      Second hand if CO is really bad just 3x overbet the flop enough to be able to get his full stack in in 3 streets, he's calling regardless if he has any piece of that flop especially an A.


      As a general advice just don't worry about higher sets ever, it doesn't happen that often and when you get better at hand reading you'll be able to recognize the very few situations where you can actually consider folding bottom set on dry boards. For now if he happens to have a higher set consider it a cooler and move on :)


      Hope it helps.

      Thanks, i'll bear that in mind, both the advice and the posting multiple hands in threads ;) :D
