      well played in my opinion, you don't want to go broke against a set so check/call after his minraise to dry board is the best way to get maximum of worse hands and lose minimum to better hands.

      I thought so, but knowing the result it's hard to think it was well played..

      Thanks anyway, I will try to keep playing my A-game and hopefully the tides will turn
