Not really, especially because there's no common way people play flopped sets. Personally i would think that this guy is chasing flush until the river but there's no way i would put him on a set right there on the flop. Anyways, situations like this will happen, sometimes you'r gonna be on the other side but i don't believe that there's a point where we all can make a difference in regards to profit, situations like this are win or lose. It's online poker and i'd love to see someone really saying that this might be a fold situation for you without a possible straight or flush, i mean what kind of beast you'd have to be to see this coming.
Once again, there's nothing you could do here, furthermore, there's a plenty of room where you can make a difference when it comes to skills in online poker and this one just doesn't fit there.
I think, the money should have gone in way faster than this. You are both slow-playing, and that is not a good idea on a dynamic board like this. Your flop bet is really small, and so is his raise, so I would definitely go for a 3-bet on the flop and get some more money in the pot. Charge his draws and get some value. This time he had a higher set, but that is such a small part of his range, it does not matter. And no you can not get away. You have to get stacked here, but you should take a more active part in getting stacked
Since you are playing zoom there is not much you can do.. maybe tag the guy and put a note on him. Also bet bigger on the flop.. 0.16 is like worse than checking.. bet like $0.40 cause you want to build a pot.
