Protecting Top 2 Pair on a 3-FL board.
To be honest I was more worried about the board flush, but I guess a set beats top two pair as well [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Did I protect this wrong? And just for curiousity, should Jeffro503 have bet bigger to protect his set?

Variance took my in the back room yesterday for a quickie. Today its breaking my kneecaps for asking for another one. <sigh>

BTW, i know the PF call was wrong. I want to discuss the postflop. TY.

Re: Protecting Top 2 Pair on a 3-FL board.
The preflop call wasn't horrible IMO. He only made a small raise.

As for post flop... ooh, that's tough. He was pretty dumb to call you there. His big bet out gave you a good reason to push. If he flopped a flush there's no way he bets out that much at you. So you have a good reason to think he's on a semi-bluff with like A-X with one heart, or a pocket pair with one heart.

Still though, even if you knew with 100% certainty that he was playing a 4-flush draw, there's a decent chance he makes it (plus, he could also be playing a K-Q with one heart for a straight and flush draw). That early in the tournament, I would probably lay it down and live to fight another day. I wouldn't be happy about it though.
