      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 3:club: , 3:spade:
      4 folds, Hero calls $0.25, 2 folds, BU calls $0.25, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.85) 3:diamond: , 2:heart: , 4:heart: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.75, BU calls $0.75, BB folds.

        Make my set on a very dangerous flop. How much should I bet on this?

      Turn: ($2.35) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BU calls $2.00.

        Flushdraw completed, so I will fold to a big raise.

      River: ($6.35) T:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.75, BU folds.

      Final Pot: $10.10

      Bet half pot roughly, if a big raise comes over the top, I can fold it. Would a check/call be better?

      I think the flop bet is correct. What is a good size for this turn?

      Hi aciddrop!

      Hand 1) Flopplay is ok. I wouldn't always fold to a raise on the turn because you still have outs for your full house or quads. It depends on the amount of the raise. On the river I would play check/call to get the maximum out of worse hands and lose the minimum against better hands. For example: Any flush draw would fold to a riverbet, but if you just check (and show weakness) you might induce a bluff from a busted draw. On the other hand: if you get (min-)raised you have a difficult decision

      Hand 2) Bet $4 on the turn. That should be enough to protect your hand against flushdraws but on the other hand you don't lose too much against a T or set.

      Good luck at the tables!
