Explanation of Set

Set is a common colloquial term used to describe three of a kind in poker when made using a pocket pair in either Hold’em or Omaha. Making three of a kind without having a pocket pair in the hole can instead be referred to as making trips.

Example of Set used in a sentence -> (Hold’em) We 3bet preflop with our pocket Kings and flopped a set of Kings.
