      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with 3:diamond: , 3:heart:

      Final Pot: $5.10

      Am I losing set value here or should I be happy to take down the pot as I did?. Normally I'd lead out for about 120-130 post flop but on this occasion I was quite sure MP2 would bet and was hoping my rr would get further action so quite disappointed they both folded.

      yes, you should be happy to collect the pot right there. You don't want to see anyone calling you with flush/straight draws and completing that on turn. (you could make a bigger reraise on flop) It's just bad luck that you don't get called here by big overpair.

      I would have come out betting (~1,5) on flop though, because of the draws there are, if you're unlucky you're opponents check behind and get a free card to complete there draw.

      Hi JackxxRatt!

      I would have bet here, too (~$1.20). The reason for it is that you might get raised by overpairs which means that you could reraise them and have more (all?) money in the pot. And that's what you want to achieve. The other advantage is that your opponents don't get the chance to check behind and outdraw you.

      Good luck at the tables!
