      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $5.60
      CO:
      $7.33
      BU:
      $3.32
      SB:
      $2.63
      BB (Hero):
      $2.25
      MP2:
      $1.92


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 5.
      2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, SB raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.04, CO calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.18) A, 5, Q (3 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, SB calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.58) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.38) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.59, SB calls $1.59.

      Final Pot: $4.56.

      Results follow:

      SB shows a pair of aces(Ad Kd).
      Hero shows three of a kind, fives(5h 5c).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, fives(5h 5c).

      How can I extract the most value of a flopped set? I think I made a mistake in min raising on the flop, but I was scared villain might fold.

      Should I have raised more on the turn so that I would have a pot sized bet left on the river?

      On the river, even with most draws completing (flush, straight --> didn't really put any 2 in his PF range tho) I think his checking on the river after betting both flop and turn looked really weak, therefore I decided to shove it, hoping for a call from an ace.

      I'd make it $0.3 on the flop. SB is isolating CO OOP preflop and cbetting against two on that board. Even if you raise to $0.2 his not going to call with a wider range.

      I'd rase a little more on the turn so I have a potsize bet on the river.
