      Since I really suck at playing sets , I need your advice ..

      First of all, should I have bet flop or check/raised ( if raise , then how much , so I dont scare off the opponents).. I called because the flop is dry , and if the villains bet was a bluff, then he may try it again on the turn ..

      Then, the turn.. Should I have bet here ( I didnt want to bet , because I wanted to give the opponents a chance to bluff , and again not scare off), or is my check okay?


      Thanks ahead

      If you hit your set, you want to get all your money in. So lead out on flop. Also bet on turn and bet on river. If he folds, he hasnt got nothing.

      So simple bet, bet, bet line should be ok.

      And you can raise PPs preflop, although here OOP with two limpers completing is ok.

      Check raising the flop to $1 is good here, since there are 2 other players, one of them is likely to bet out. Also your getting alot more money into the pot which will enable you to stack him if he has a King. Don't just call or bet out, because your not getting enough money in the pot to stack him, also if he has a King and an Ace or Jack comes hes likely to slow down considerably on the turn. Then bet $2 on the turn which makes the pot $6.30, the just shove the river. Who knows maybe he might even shove to when you 3bet on the flop.

      Hi,


      Rebuy to 100bb preflop.

      Postflop both leading out and check/raising are fine. With 3 opponents it's likely at least one of them has enough of a hand to bet, so check/raising would be my first choice in that spot unless you know they're really passive. On turn and river just keep betting and hope he has enough to pay off.

      Bigsades's bet sizing allows you to get all your stack in by the river nicely without making huge bets, it's fine.


      Hope it helps.
