      I'd stick it in on flop also.
      On NL5 they can pretty much have there AK,KQ,KJ,KT easily(AK less likely),or even push w/ hands like TT+.
      Nh imo.

      but after reviewing my hand.. . its very unlikely he got KQ, KJ, KT becuase he could not call a 4bet on preflop with those..

      only maybe an AK could.. and its less likely he got another ace..

      .. so i was thinking i should have easily placed him on KK..

      . maybe a QQ could call a 4bet preflop.. but he can't call an cbet..

      thanks for your thoughts bro.

      I would also mention out that you are almost 200BB deep, I don't really except him to have there that often a worse hand that I'd like to go broke, I like the idea of Bet/Fold on flop, thought in some cases it might be a bit tight but it's a multiway pot and also we are 200BB deep. I'd just Bet/Fold.

      Best regards.

      I would personally not b/f on the flop
      Just he can likely make the same play with AK or flushdraws and if you´re against set then you still have backdoor flushdraw that gives you extra outs.
      Player has to be really nit that I´d consider b/f there aces

      preflop raise size is bad imo, at least make it 12bb, and on flop its ok 2/3 pot and call, exception is if u bet one calls and the other player is shoving or reraising a small ammount like BU...minraises or 2x raises usually means a set, u got the A block so they dont have AK, KQ wont really be so brave with 2more players on the flop with top pair, that leaves u to sets, or a very stupidly played flushdraw..but u need stats for this, if BU is loose then u can easily shove, if its a tight player he cant have sets, coz they wont ever call a 4bet (even if its a normal 3bet bet size) with 22/77 imo. so that leaves u to bluffs, or slowplayed KK...shove imo anytime, and raise bigger pre, now that i think of it..i'd even make it bigger, 14bb ye at least

      hello osza..

      actually i 3bet to 14 BB preflop.. i squeezed to 3 times his raise..

      so you were saying it was better if i bet / call on the flop..

      and bet fold on the turn? .. would that make me pot committed with around 7 dollars pot already?

      thanks kaitz! . .so , is it just a case of a hand i can't get away that much?
