      I called pre-flop hoping to hit a set, i don't mind the min raise so much cause his min raises aren't enough to scare off people much. I hit the dream flop, hitting my set. I re-raised because there was 2 hearts on the flop and i'm trying to protect myself against possible flush draws from hitting their flush. Was this a good move or should i have just called and hope to get more money?

      2 players call the contibet, so they are interested in the flop. With 3 other players in the pot, there is a good chance there's a flush draw out there so protection is fine, even if it loses some value.

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. Nothing much you can do there except you could raise a bit bigger.

      Best regards,

      This. Make it $2 and don't sweat it if you get not action, if they don't call the raise with a flushdraw on the flop they're probably not putting in anymore money unless they draw out on you anyway.


      Hope it helps.
