      Should I have checked behind on the flop? I guess Kx, 10x, high PP hands and spade FD hands call. This opponent seemed to own my soul - he called/raised most of my c-bets over ~200 hands so I was hoping he'd do the same on this one but no luck... :(

      Known Players:
      UTG2: $7.51 - 376 bb
      UTG3: $2.03 - 102 bb
      MP1: $0.98 - 49 bb
      MP2: $7.04 - 352 bb
      MP3: $2.00 - 100 bb
      CO: $2.45 - 123 bb
      BU: $2.00 - 100 bb
      SB: $2.40 - 120 bb
      BB: $2.24 - 112 bb

      0.01/0.02 No Limit Hold'em (9 Handed)
      Hand recorder for this hand: SideKick 1.0.51206.2

      Guess what, there is only one way to get value; and that's by betting :D If he wanna call he will do, either now or on the turn after a blank card. You just want to "inflate" the pot getting called by worse and if possilbe to shove turn or river vs bad calling stations.
      Also, if a spade or let 's say a Jack comes later and you get raised, probably we are way behind. Even this type of hands is very dangerous if you
      can 't lay it down, at least by my point of view.
      I have regretted hunderds of times for slowplaying, but never for betting with strong made hands.

      Hi red,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I would actually cbet larger on this type of flop (unless we were looking to induce here).

      The only time I would check would be to get villain to bet behind us a lot and then ck/raise him. But since he was calling/raising you a lot there's no need for that.
