Hard to get away from some hands....did all you could here...just one of those beats. Been there afew times myself losing set/set and boat/boat. When the dust settles...just dust myself off and head to the next one.

personally, i wouldn't be betting 1500 into a 900 pot and it depends on how the preflop betting went.
if there was a few limps and you limped then i would be playing it slow with pot control because i would be worried about the straight, but if there was only you and him in the pot and it was raised preflop then i wouldn't be worried about the straight and i would be trying to get all my chips in the middle.
but after you over bet the flop and he re-raises i would probs put him on an over pair and just get all my money in there. not alot you can do about that kind of outcome tho

At first, I think I would have went all-in on the flop. Ok, I know you had top three of a kind and maybe can be considered as a bad move, but it was the best way to try to guarantee what was already at that pot. If not there, at least at the turn. Although being behind, now that we know the opponent’s cards, the difference between your stack and your opponent is huge, you have to make him go after you or leave. He would have won this hand anyway, so don’t be sad about it, you played well too, trying to win. Four of a kind doesn’t appear every day.
I will be probbably call, becaouse there was only one out to your hand, so clear call. That was only bad luck to you and i am happy, because something like that never happend to me yet and i hope it will never happen.

I'd have done the same thing you did and that's about it. I wouldn't think the opponent would happen to have pair of sevens from the get go let alone hit four of a kind so I'd be done. It happens and you had a nice set.
