      0,05/0,10 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4:heart: , 4:spade:
      7 folds, BU calls $0,10, SB calls $0,05, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,30) 4:club: , 5:heart: , Q:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,20, BU calls $0,20, SB folds.

        Was able to see a free flop and was happy to flop a set.

      Turn: ($0,70) 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1,60 (All-In), BU calls $1,60.

        According to the SSS, I have to move all-in with a made hand on the turn/river, so I did.

      River: ($3,90) J:heart:


      Final Pot: $3,90

      He showed me a 3-6 off suit and beat my set with a straight...

      You should only bet 50cent
      if he calls you can still push the River.
      When you push the Turn you bet 2times the pot and that's way to much

      It´s enough - like Chiller said - to bet $0.50 here, not much to protect against here. With such an Overbet not many hands will call your - usely only better hands or maybe a Q or Two Pair (or another Set).

      It´s enough when you push then on the River. This hand is also a good example that the SSS is working, since that crappy player will pay you off in the long run.

      So nice hand, except for the Overbet on the Turn, you played it good. :)
