      MP1 ($31.50)
      MP2 ($55.55)

      Hero ($10)
      SB ($48.75)
      BB ($59.60)
      UTG ($37)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with K:spade: , K:club: .
      [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], MP2 calls $0.50, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2.5[/color], [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], MP2 calls $2.

      Flop: ($5.75) K:heart: , 5:club: , 2:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      MP2 checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $3.5[/color], MP2 calls $3.50.

      Turn: ($12.75) T:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      River: ($0) 9:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $20.75

      Should I have bet more on the flop to protect against a flush draw? I was hoping for a call when I bet, but after the third heart fell on the turn I was wishing that I had bet more on the flop...

      Thanks,

      Make it around $3.80, but besides that, very nice hand. Why be worried against a FD? The chance for that isn´t that big, and even if he has a FD. He has only 9 Outs, but you have 7 Outs for a Full House on the Flop and 10 Outs on the Turn. So if for both, Turn and River, you have 17 "Chances" in the Deck to improve and your Opponent a maximum of 18 "Chances". And very often your opponent does not have a FD.

      @ Kknight- thatś why you probably posted that hand:) , because he was drawing and you lost. To me it is also difficult choise, should I push with my set to protect hand:D or make normal contibet. You have already 25 BB so you could leave if he folds, but with your set you should want that he would calls in the long run. If he is on the flush draw and calls flop, then he wont fold turn even if he didn´t hit the flush, so you double up or get stacked:) In the end it is your choise how much you want to gamle:D

      First you never fold TOP Set in HU. And its not really gambling, cause even if he has a FD we have as many chances then our Opponent to improve to a Full House. And our Opponent has to improve to beat us, not us. ;) So in the long shot we always want our money in the middle of the table in this spot.
