Sometimes I think I miss MAX Value

V2 21/14/50
V3 23/16/68
V5 38/18/30
V8 17/10/57
V9 21/17/64

My thinking here is standard "No Set No Bet2 and if re-raised Pre Flop then fold.

Its Checked to me and I bet 3Qtr and all Fold

In spots like this I feel I'm losing value

If I don't bet I feel I let another player hit a higher Set or give a free card to hit straight.

From the V3 & V5 I was hoping for a hand Like AQ would re-raise me so I could Shove for value.

I'm Multi Tabling so my play is straight - Hit set = bet

Did I miss value or is my play correct ?

Your play is absolutely standard and correct here. You went set-mining for a bargain price (goota love those EP minraises!) and the pot went multiway, so you're much more likely to get action when you hit your 2-outer.
This is one of the driest flops imaginable, but you can usually get called here. 3/4 pot is fine. I'd sometimes go even bigger (like 22c into 25c) if there are stations to my left, and especially if the board is a bit wetter.
It sucks when no one has anything. You're usually getting called for one bet by hands like 99/88, and certainly Qx. Slowplaying is definitely not a good option, as it misses a whole street of value, and will lead to you getting sucked out on much more often.

Nice hand, just unlucky that no one gave you action.


Bracelet Winner
