      I stealed from BU and get called. I hit TPNK. I thought the Flop is dry and no need protection. So, I check behind to induce bluff. The Villain dbet very small, it seem like weakness. So, I raised 3 times his bet to keep the villain in pot. On the rival, the villain seem like give up. I vbet about 1/2 pot.
      Do you think it is better to cbet on Flop? Raise bigger on Turn? Vbet bigger or all in at Rival? Thanks

      Hey JHTAN,

      I like the cb on the flop, because if you get called on this flop you will usually be dominated by better Ax.

      On the turn, I would raise slightly bigger, like 0.50-0.60$.

      On the river, I like the half potsize bet. He will almost never have an Ax there and you hit second nuts, so you should go for value from PPs and 9x hands which probably wouldn't call a shove.

      Happy new year!
