      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, 3 folds, MP3 calls $1.25, 4 folds, UTG calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($4.10) 7:heart: , 3:club: , K:heart: (3 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $3, MP3 folds, UTG raises to $8.50, Hero calls $5.50.

      River: ($48.14) 6:spade:


      Final Pot: $48.14

      limp/call from UTG and check/raise indicated pretty clearly that he had hit his set, but is there some way not to go broke here since he could be holding a flushdraw? (his aggression factor was high, 4.0 over 80hands)

      Hi degnic!

      It's a tough decision and I would like to know more about your opponent ;) Against unknown I would go broke as well especially because the flush didn't complete on the turn. But I would recommend you to go all-in on the flop already. This way draws have to pay the maximum. If you are running into a set it's just bad luck and part of the game.

      Good luck at the tables!

      how about if the board was dry, still would go broke?

      if he leads flop and I raise and he reraises, I think I could fold right there? (in case the flop is dry)

      I think villain's stats were pretty normal (~20Vpip / 8pfr / ~50% won @ SD) except the aggression factor which was bit higher than "normal"

      If the board is rainbow (e.g. 7:diamond: 3:club: K:heart:) I would play the hand like you did. He could easily hold a pocket pair or a weaker king. A set is possible as well but he can also raise you to find out if you really hit your king. On the turn the pot is too big to fold your TPTK. Against a big stack (more than 120 BB) I would have folded but not against a normal stack.
      If he leads the flop, you raise and he reraises you, you have an easy fold.

      Good luck at the tables!
