      i should have probably slow played this hand right? i thought since he raised preflop he'd have had relatively high pockets, but alas :(

      also, should i have folded preflop to the raise? or is it correct to call in the hopes to make a set?

      I think a call and slowplay would be good here, especially because there is no flushdraws out there. If he has two highcards, he's not going to call your raise on flop but if you just call, maybe he will catch something on turn or fire another barrel even if he doesn't. And if he got something like aces or kings, you can put him all-in later. Nice hand.

      NH as played. A strong raise from the BB often means a big hand. If villain has an OP then he is in a very tough spot indeed and all 120BB's is often going in the middle. IMO best raise now in case villain has TT-QQ and an overcard falls.

      All you are risking for playing a massive pot with the nuts is the vague possibility of gaining another bet versus AK/AQ.

      A flat-call versus a maniac/terrible player might just be OK but against any normal/unknown player you played your hand well.

      The call preflop is OK, you're getting enough odds to call for setvalue.

      IMO it's okay to slowplay here, If he's got middle pair, there aren't a lot of cards to scare him, and anyway he's OOP, he's probably taking another shot even if a scare card falls on the turn.

      If he's got two high cards, he may catch up on the turn, or bet again even if he doesn't.

      slowplaying is okay on this board. He can keep on bluffing or hitting something

      Hi w3ewe3!

      I agree with Peter87. In this spot it seems to be better to just call and hope that Villain bets again on the turn. The preflopcall is good as well because you both have 15-times the amount you have to call left.

      Good luck at the tables!

      This is quite clearly wrong.

      The pot is already almost 20BB's after the PF action and villain makes a strong bet on the flop. This means that even if villain goes into check/call mode we can still get all the money in by simply calling the flop , betting 2/3 pot on the turn and 4/7 pot on the river.
