      Is there any chance getting away my set. It doesn´t happen a lot, that people are higher sets but in this case I thought that he might have set or two pair. I also might put him some kind of draw- but seemed that he was trying to protect his hand: so two pair or set- figure it out;)

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Nice hand! Never fold a set in such a situation as kexix already mentioned.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Hi Kaitz,

      you hit your set, so you hope that you be able to put all your money in the pot. You betted your set on the flop and then their was an overbet behind you, that can mean a lot, from top pair, draw to two pair or a set. Only two hands beat you here and thats JJ and 88. JJ mostly will be raised preflop. So you have to believe to have the best hand on the flop in 9 out of 10 times. So easy call here. You did everything right. :)

      Good luck on the tables.
