      Starting preflop i raised to protect my kings. 3 other people paid my raise to see the FLOP.

      On FLOP I have got a set. After a raise I have little reraised to protect my hand and to see if someone is chasing a flush DRAW.Still 2 people pay my reraise.

      On the TURN comes a blank card (for me) so I decide to bet heawy to see if somebody is still something chasing.Still 1 player calls my raise.

      On the RIVER the pot is sooo big,that the MP2 is all in.I sad to myself that is still a possibiliti that he is blufing me,or maybe not- i put him on: AA,AK,99.

      Was my FLOP reraise to small?
      Did I raised the Turn to small?
      I know that my stack is very deep(300BB)! Would be maybe better to check the TURN and see what happens on RIVER?
      On RIVER he goes all-in.He is still unknown to me (21hands played).Would be still better to muck the hand and very heawy to fall a sleap?

      You are not protecting your hand on the flop.Your raise is too small and you are giving odds for both players to call if they are drawing.

      Maybe 30 on the turn. beacause with 25 if one calls the other one has nearly the odds to call with a flush draw.

      On the river he might go AI with a busted flush draw.
      But anyway you have 100% equity so I don't really understand why you are questioning the call. You are winning this hand no matter what he has!!

      he could have 67 but that is just so unlikely given flop play. If you are posting this hand it probally means that he did have 67. Its a cooler, forget about it. Also, if u r not comfortable playing so deep, just leave after a double/triple up.

      67 beat you indeed. My apologies was late when i posted.
      not sure if It is that of a cooler if he had 7d8d: he had odds on the flop to call and on the turn he has 11 outs which is 1/4. He has to call 25 to win 66 which is 1/2.6. No odds to call but it is decent to think that he has some implied odds as well if he hits ( especially if he hits his straight). So on the turn he might not be far of having the odds to call.
      Conclusion: protect your hand on the flop by betting 25 and also by betting slightly more on the turn.

      I think the only mistake here is your flop raise. Make it bigger: about 17 should do it. Your turn bet is good (it may be even bigger). And you cant fold on river with top set and second nuts here. There is pretty much only one hand that beats you (unless your opponent didnt call with gutshot on flop) - 6d7d. Btw if he isnt the best player around, he could have called your tiny flop raise with gutshot also.

      About his range: he could easily have there some busted FD, lower set.

      I´d also like a little bigger flop raise to 12$
      Turn and river are fine
      I´d call river. if he has there 67 then be it. but you should also see enough busted draws, two pair hands, sets

      If you ever consider for a second folding this hand you should try to quit poker or find a psychologist to deal you with the super bad beats. :P :P

      You should have also raised bigger the flop like they bet 3/3 pot is 14 you raise to at least 15.Something which is close to pot.Whenever someone just calls this flop be sure he is either going to give you all the money with his set or is going to take all your money with the flushdraw,that being said BET SUPER BIG ON TURN.Like if pot was 50$ you should be betting 45$ all day long.And river is the rest.This should be the perfect play as versus set you will always get the money but you lack versus draws.
