      Hello I ran into a tough decision today when I was playing a session. I play Q Q raise it up to 4 bb from MP1 MP2 calls me. The flop comes down and I got the top set on the board, I think i made my first mistake here by only betting 0.10 dollar into a 0.19 dollar pot! The ace of spade shows up on the turn and it completes the flush. Witch makes me feel a bit uncomfortble. Cause my opponent have only called the flop, and now he is re raising my pot bet. Can he think that I have a pair of aces?

      I am intrested in all of your opinions and I do only learn more if you make a comment about how you would play the hand!

      I think you should pot flop and bet 1/2 pot on turn, instead of the reverse.

      As played on the turn villain's action just looks like a flush or AQ. There are only 3 AQ combos out there and about 4-5 flush combos. 88/AQ would probably raise that flop. So it REALLY looks like a flush.

      All in all it's either a push or a fold on the turn. Calling turn and bet river when your hand didn't improve doesn't make sense. Plus if a 4th flush falls on the river you are screwed.

      I wouldn´t really bet pot on the turn. I think 0.34 is fine value bet. After get raised I would likely shove. You´re not c/f river, he can raise there worse hands than your set and best just to put all the money in on the turn
