      I had no stats on him, so how should I have better played the flop??He had aces and I had a set,should I have bet more on the flop???The bet on the river was so small because he had 10 cents left in his stack

      You should always have a plan for your bet sizing. "Ok I have what amounts to the nuts and bad players show up with a lot of Ax hands that they're never looking to fold as well as draws they love to chase, so how do I get all the money in as soon as possible before the draws miss?"

      In that spot it's awkward because it's tough to get it in in 2 streets, unless you think he doesn't care about you overbetting, in which case you should just bet ~$0.25 on the flop and jam any turn. Otherwise just bet as close to pot as you think he'll call with draws until you're both all-in.

      As played no reason to leave him $0.1 behind on the turn, what if he has spades and he folds the blank rivers? Then you just left behind $0.1 of value. Just shove it in.

      Hope it helps.
