      0,02/0,04 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.7 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with 4:heart: , 4:spade:
      Hero calls $0,04, 5 folds, SB calls $0,02, BB raises to $0,16, Hero calls $0,12, SB folds.

      Flop: ($0,36) 9:heart: , Q:spade: , A:heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0,36) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,16, Hero raises to $0,60, BB raises to $1,04, Hero raises to $4,64 (All-In), BB raises to $4,25 (All-In).

        Should I have played this any different? But since set is a quite strong hand and therefore I wanted to play a bigger pot for it, but should I have 4bet him a bit lighter or just called his 3bet?
        I guess his flopcheck seemed kind of weird, but I figured he might as well have held 2pair or perhaps KK. I didnt have many hands on him either.

      River: ($9,25) J:spade:


      Final Pot: $9,25

      Hi snowylee!

      I think you played this hand very well. He bets and reraises your raise which normally means that he is willing to go all the way with his hand. For this reason an all-in reraise is fine.

      Good luck at the tables!
