    You played fine.
    I don't see why you played the 3 and discarded the 4 on 7th street.


    It's BaldBullBot who laid a stinker.

    I'd have played AT9 up top, but it's incredibly unlikely that your 2nd kicker will matter.
    The 9 has no value in the mid, anyway.

    On the set, the Q goes up top. I'd split the KJ85 into J8 on the bottom and K5 in the mid. The plan is to draw a K and a Q and hit 2 pair on the bottom. If the two pair on the bottom comes in early, then 2 pair in the middle is an option... so long as the K hasn't paired yet.

    On 7th
    Pair the Q up top, pair the 5 in the mid, discard the 2

    On 9th
    Play the pair of T's on the bottom, discard the 8. Villain already played one of your outs (8), so going for T's is a higher pair with more outs.

    On 11th
    Play the J to the bottom, completing 2-pair: J8TTJ. 9's are more live (Villain played a 4), so go with the 9 to the mid, and discard the 4.

    On 13th
    Luckbox that 9 to the mid, making 2-pair: K5599. Play the 3 up top to avoid fouling with the Q and make QQ3

    Final hand

    QQ3
    9955K
    JJTT8

    The middle got a bit scary near the end there. The danger was imposed with the K being no good to us as an out due to it making 2 pair in the mid higher than 2 pair on the bottom. It's a risk I take on the set, and there are other styles. It was pretty lucky to draw that 9 on 13th street.

    Some people would set the KQ up top. Some would set like you did. I think the power of Fantasy Land is too great to be setting AKQ anywhere but the top. Placing a K or A in the mid when there's a Q up top can protect that FL bid.

    I don't really like it.

    You're going to be in trouble hitting 2 pair in the mid with this set. It could make you foul if you can't beat 2 pair on the bottom and you're looking at 77's up on the bottom and TT's up in the mid.

    T9o is an OK starting hand in hold'em, but you are playing a tough game here trying to go for a straight in the mid. You've already blocked 7's from your straight draw, since you're obv playing them to the bottom. Plus you must hit at least a full house on the bottom to cover a straight, since you already laid a pair on the bottom.

    In drawing to your straight, you're not only blocked on the 7's, putting you at drawing to J-high straights and above... but those Q+ cards are at home on the top row, not in the middle, making a straight.

    Shoot for Fantasy Land whenever possible, and don't block a FL bid on later streets with your early streets, just because you don't have any high cards.

    I much prefer to set it
    XXX
    95
    77T

    Don't play around with straights in the mid this time. Shoot for trips+ on the bottom, 2 pair in the mid, and hope for QQ+ up top.

    This looks OK. 3 to a straight flush can give you some headaches on later streets when you have to decide whether or not to play a that doesn't make the straight flush. Or playing a non- to go for the straight.

    Nonetheless, you're never going to hit a straight flush if you don't go for it from time to time.

    I like this set better:

    Q
    A
    776

    As played, on the second draw I'd place 8 in mid rather than up to.

    Looks like a missed opportunity to make a FL bid with a Q or KQ up top, IMO.
    Also, going for a flush when you already know you're twice blocked is risky.

    Holding out for that royal on the draw was super risky, in the long run. If you didn't get all 5 cards at once, you'd have been screwed, for sure. Seems like you were really relying on that luck-box draw to make your hand, here.

    Villain already has you beat with 5-high in the mid, anyway. His Q up top is brutal, too.
    I don't see how you recover from this set.

    Good points, maybe I should have set it KQ / A / JT, I'll keep that in mind next time I'm dealt a royal in 10 years.

    I'd avoid setting a heart flush when you can already see 3 hearts on the table before your turn starts.

    That said, this is an OK set, with no really big errors in it.

    would you have done QQ/7733/KKK vs way I decided. Id only guess this secondary hand would scoop more often but maybe I am over valuing small two pair vs a single big pair.

    naturally the boat plus the 77s give a bit more royality from the top but not sure 77 will scoop in this set vs having QQ/7733/ and then leaving back weaker with KKK.
