Super ugly spot.

Not sure if this is a good spot to donkbet OTF...
Turn: well played
River: easy fold with a big sigh...

At the microstakes I always play these hands super straightforward. When you hit your set on the flop and there's already two cards of the same suit: bet! Especially with the 4.5x open, I expect him to have a KQ/AK/AA/KK sort of hand. Most of the opponents with King/x + club draws will call you. Even if they don't call you all the way to the river, it's still better to make them pay for trying to get that flush.

Hi Lovehouse888,

I didn't bet the flop, because I am in the habit of checking to the preflop raiser. I can see why in these situation donk betting could be idea! like you said because of the draw, villain could raise the flop donk bet with an overpair, etc, so that I can get value with my set, etc. If the draws completes on the turn where it has been checked, then this could kill my action.

Cheers,

Matt

Normally, in that sort of spot (calling + OOP), I like to check raise, but I also like to bet out, too. Unfortunately, I don't think there was much you could do there but fold. I think you played it well.

It's played OK. I'd only donkbet if I suspect the PFR will not c-bet. If he's inclined to c-bet (and this is a good board to do so), then I go for a big check-raise, and I'm happy however villains responds. (It's sometimes OK if villain folds away his equity when you have a set).
As played is fine. Call the turn raise with 10 outs and implied odds, but always fold when you miss the river.
