    1. I fold pre without breaking sweat. We're facing all in action, we're gonna be multiway often, this is not a good spot to be getting it in with a small pair. This is an easy fold, don't let the fact that 33 sucked out on river fool you into thinking this was a bad beat. It was a bad shove.

    2. Um, why the hell are you folding this river? Your raise pre is small, given there's a limp. I'd probably just limp behind, but if I raise I do so in an effort to get HU with the limper, so make it bigger. Flop is awesome but there's plenty of draws so bet more, maybe 70% of pot. Turn isn't great but we should definitely still bet, there's tons of hands that just turned into flush draws, some with a straight draw too. There's still a lot of value on turn. River, ok now he leads. The question I'm asking is if I should just call or shove, I'm never ever folding here after turn checks through. This is a really bad fold.

    3. I don't hate the call pre flop, we have button and over 10x bet size left behind, but folding would be ok too. Flop, I think I just give up here because I expect multiple bets and I have no intetion of calling all the way down. Turn feels like an easy fold, sample size is too small to think he auto double barrel his entire range.

    4. You are underplaying the fuck out of sets. Pre flop is a marginal raise but forget that, that's not the area you need to focus on here. The flop call is weak considering there's lots of flush draws and Qx in villain's range, but ok calling might lure him into firing again. he doesn't. You absolutely have to bet this turn, no question. I don't know what you're thinking here. Are you trying to trap him? Or are you afraid of being beaten?

    5. I quite like this hand. I would either b/f all three streets, or c/c, depending on if I think villain is bluffy. Stats are loose and he seems aggro, so yeah, I'm happy to let him bet this and for me to reassess each street.

    tl;dr... stop being a fucking wuss with a set. Your winrate is taking a serious hit if that's par for the course with you holding a set.

    It's worth noting that you seem to like playing pocket pairs. Yet you're failing dismally to get maximum value when they hit. This is going to have a serious impact on your winrate, no question. Fold smaller pairs in early position more often, and don't be scared of bad runouts when you do have a set. If you flop a set, then your default frame of mind is "how do I get all the chips in?".
