very unlucky but why u go all in.Normaly u got a very strong hand u take big money from this pot when any of the players got an A.Make a good bet to make the pot bigger.I dont know the players on the table but when u got good players on the table they fold an A with a weak kicker when u go all in.When u play pot they called and u got money on the river.You say no risk of a flush on the flop so u got only a few riski cards in the moment KQ,KT,QT,AJ,43 so the players got not so many outs.Ok maybe one of the player got KQ and the other AJ thats was bad but u got on the flop more then 65% to win these hand.So i think that was a bad play
Posted by bless9: I played this hand in cash table no-limit . 0.25$/ 0.50$ three players
one raises preflop 0.60$, im second I call with 55, third calls also 0.60$.
Flop is 5 A J , I hit set on flop. all different, no afraid of flush, I raise all in 32$.
Result: both of em called, other with A4, that was kind of player I wanted along with the pot. Other had A A. So he won the pot. Nothing changed in later cards.
What do you think? Good play, bad play or just had bad luck?
No matter what you have done ... in any case you were dead. You would'nt never folded your trips. If you bet 3/4pot, your opponent would re-raise, you call or all-in ... it doesn't matter .. bad luck in any case. By the way, congrats for Atletico's Europa League

Posted by SCDossett: Mostly unlucky. However i still dont like the allin on the flop.
In general I think you should make a normal 3/4 - pot sized raise on that flop. If you play all of your sets like that people will put notes on you and not call with anything less than the nuts.
Set over set you are almost gauranteed to get all your money in the middle.
This is, in my opinion, an intelligent comment: your destiny in this hand was to put all your money in the pot and to lose them all (unfortunately), but the way you put your money in the middle makes the difference for the future hands

They were aggressive players. That's why I believe they buy my big raise. Well I went to table with 6$, had 33$ before this hand, should stopped then. After this had 8$, made from there to 12$, and then left, so still not bad because I doubled from what I brought in, but disappointed of this hand still.
I believe this was first time I got beat by higher set on flop, when playing table up to 5 players. It is not happening very often.

from 6 to 33$ was a nice run.My meaning is better u got out u have win much and open a new table so u lost not all what u have win.I do it so.When i not make this is very offen i get a strong hand and was beaten like u. btw playing with 6$ and blind 0.25/0.50 is pure gambling and not the right way only u want have a little bit gambling fun
Bit unlucky for finding a fish and a ( half ) shark in same table. I would have pushed as you did, avoiding to go all in ( you were out of position too ) and probably, after your raise the winner one would have re-raised, allowing you to save money maybe

That's the nature of online poker games, since you are playing many more hands than usual, you would be seeing more set-ups like these. Also i believe that most if not all online poker software out there has a slightly adjusted chance of having set over sets, because that way pots get bigger and thus the rake gets bigger too. Just my opinion.

Well it's just being unlucky, was in the same scenario then you few days ago, hit a set of fives on a rainbow no draw flop, after my reraise opponent puts me all in, but for me it turned out being very lucky as I hit another 5 on the turn

I think you were really unlucky. The chance that somybody beads you with that hand is small. Bu why did you go all in? In your case you could think about raising a bit lower to cash more. But that always remains a risk.
