      Limp calling was probably really bad here, but my main question is how to act when I flop the nuts? I checked the "scare card" on the turn trying to induce a bluff, should I have bet instead for value?

      Oef I do not like this hand at all

      I just raise preflop BvB as a steal.

      The Turn check is really bad because you have to protect your hand against 2 flushdraws now so betting is more rule than exception here. I also do not think he will always bluff when you check to him but this is simply not the right spot

      I think I also check/raise potsized on the Flop

      Best regards,
