Default Re: 109s - Set of 6s

I would have bet just a touch more on the flop and turn. So like:

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (9 handed) converter

Button (t1290)
Hero (t985)
BB (t990)
UTG (t940)
UTG+1 (t850)
MP1 (t1915)
MP2 (t915)
MP3 (t1065)
CO (t1050)

Preflop: Hero is SB with 6[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP2 raises to t30</font>, MP3 calls t30, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Hero calls t20, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>.

Flop: (t105) 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], K[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t75</font>, MP2 calls t75, MP3 folds.

Turn: (t255) A[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t175</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP2 raises to t350</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t850 (All-In)</font>, MP2 calls t430 (All-In).

River: (t905) 8[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 2 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: t1945

If stacks are short, you should C/R here, and if stacks are deep you should lead. Pretty basic NL concept. However, I've found that most villain's will call a half pot bet with overs, making a C/R pretty useless as it's only advantage over leading is that it catches and hopefully pot commits overs on a c-bet.

So I lead for half pot, because I'm thinking that will entice overs to call as I look weak. If called and Villain is aggro and the turn blanks, I'll often check and allow him to bluff, at which point I end the hand. If he catches an obvious scare card I have him.

Anyway, I'm rambling. I bet 50 instead of 75 because I wanted to catch overcards. I think 75 folds em out. Thoughts?
