i know i put my money in good but can any one estimate about what the odds were when the money went in, i have been in a couple spots like this lately and maybe on the off hand chance i actually was even money?

Without resorting to an odds calculator...
Their outs were - 3 queens, 3 tens, 4 nines for 10 outs, plus running eights or jacks or running ace king... The 10 outs with two cards to come give them 40%, the running jacks or ace king would add 2% and the running eights would cancel off against your chance of running nines for a full house. So you were 58/42... Didn't notice if there were any backdoor flush possibilities, but that would sway it 1% one way or another. So at best, you were 59% and at worst 57%.
These are only rough calculations I've done in my head, so I expect to be put right by someone with an odds calculator real soon
You certainly got your money in ahead... But personally, I would have folded to pre flop raise.
------------ Oooops... Obviously should have been 2 queens and tens, not 3.... So it would have been around 65/35.

Posted by Jibberish: woot i am glad then that i did put my money in right, for a little i was poundering it to much and began to think it may have been 50/50 because i had bottom set
Actually only card that could really help you is a 5 and him not hitting again, he had gut shot and house draw on the flop, I think his % on flop would have been very high even with you flopping trips. If I was in your position I probably would have folded but that's me, I don't know what way guy was playing, you might have had a good read on him and just got unlucky. But me personally in that situation I would have folded
Posted by Jibberish: he was on major tilt, couldve give him any credit for even top 2 the table was sooo live. best thing about micro plo is its easy to make sick profits because if you can pick good tables the EV is ++
ultimately the best anyone can hope fro is to get their money into the pot with the best of it. After that luck becomes a factor. But if you had the best of it when your money went in over the long term you will come out ahead.

You were ahead after flop because you had a three of a kind and your opponent had two pairs. I guess you may have some apps available online where you can put both the hands and the cards of the flop to see those numbers you want, unfortunately I can’t look for that now, in the PC I’m using. But I guess it shouldn’t be that bad for you, although your opponent was in for lots of draws and had lots of outs too.
