Wow, Just WOW. You played the hand in the worst possible way. No offence. Im just being honest.
What everyone is saying is this: You hit your set and instead of trying to get paid for it, you are giving him an excellent price to call.
I understand that sometimes we bet small to induce bluffs from air/worse hands. But this is never a good idea because:
-A: your giving him a good price to try to catch up/beat you
-B: Your not getting enough value from your hand.
Being tricky is not what you want to be doing. What you want to be doing with your monsters is EXCTRACTING VALUE. Where is the value when you bet .2 cents?
So if villain doesnt decide to jam river(like you said you were expecting him to do) where does the value come from?
And what makes you think he is going to Jam river anyways?
