      Final Pot: $4.85.
      Results follow:

      How should I maximize my winnings with sets?? Should I have 3bet on preflop??

      Also the flop had the flush draw, should I have protected more?? One big flaw of mine is the bet sizing.I'm looking forward to your opinion at my bet sizing on all 3 streets.

      Hi,


      I wouldn't 3-bet preflop against unknowns, you have no idea how often they'll call and what they'll call with, it's going to be a pain to play correctly on many flops with overcards overall and you'll be out of position as well when BU calls.

      As played postflop I'd just bet $0.4, Qx is never folding and all the draws out there likely aren't going anywhere no matter whether you make it a bit smaller or not.

      Same on the turn relatively speaking, Qx still won't fold ever, draws might but if you bet small you give them good odds to outdraw you. I'd just bet something $0.9 by default.

      On the river I still think villain's most likely hand is a decent Q, possible even QJ that rivered two pairs and I think he can call something like $1.75 with those hands, so I'd bet that.


      Hope it helps.
