      Fold or raise PF. both choices are ok.

      depends on players waiting to act after you , if they raise often , fold . if they are passive and won't give much action , raise to steal / isolate etc.

      Hi,


      I'm pretty much always raising preflop unless maybe villain is some kind of limp/3bet machine.

      Postflop I'd raise slightly bigger on the flop and bet slightly bigger on the turn, we still stand to be ahead and I don't think it will make a difference on villain's calling range.

      On the river if there is any chance villain just lead/calls with trips I'd shove not to miss value. If however I'm convinced he'll bet/3bet trips anyway, I might make a smaller raise to try and have hands like Jx/Qx make a bad call more often.


      Hope it helps.
