I don't mean any offense, but I also disagree with this. When you flop a set 1st thing you do is look at opponents stack and figure a way to get all of it, you don't want him to fold, why would you? Your flop bet has to be big enough to make draws unprofitable, but small enough to reel him in. The bet should be 1/2 pot, looking like a c-bet, and you cross your fingers and pray that he calls it. You're now on your way. The only thing I didn't like was the smooth call on the turn, not because it would have saved him, result would've been the same, but you just made a FH and he bet into you, you MUST raise there, build the pot, make it bigger, and try to get him committed.
It was really hard here to think he made a better FH, it was just too improbable, that's why I said it would've been the "laydown of the century" in my 1st post. You almost have to be retarded to lay this down. Man its crazy.
