First of all you need to either raise or fold this preflop. Secondly put him all in on the flop. That T500 in the pot is 25% of you stack and well worth picking up.

I would raise preflop, but I totally agree with slowplaying it after the flop....a flopped set against only one other opponent is an absolute monster that you can feel safe giving him a free card. In fact, you got just what you wanted- he caught his card and went all in. He then only had 2 outs heading into the river and he was all in...I'll take those odds any day of the week, AND I'D RATHER HAVE THAT THAN SIMPLY BETTING OUT AFTER THE FLOP AND TAKING THE BLINDS.

If you raise preflop, then you might be a little more aggressive postflop, but even then, I would feel totally comfortable giving him a free card when you have that big of a hand. You simply got outdrawn,...I wouldn't worry too much about it.
