      Whats the best way to play when you flop the nuts?
      I had this happen twice lately. Once with quad 7's the other quad 5's.
      Should you play them differently depending on if you were the original raiser?

      Now I know these aren't really locked up but.............

      Annoying situation to be in sometimes :) You have to play it depending on the Villain's style. If you see he is very aggressive post flop there is no harm in slowplaying it, as you will more than likely induce a bluff, and he might catch up on later streets and end up with a hand he's willing to go all in with. Against a calling station it's a little more tricky, especially if you're OOP. I like to check the flop to them and hope they have hit the flop, or they check back and improve on the turn. After the flop though you definately have to start betting, if he's not getting money in on the turn it's more than likely he won't be investing in the river either :)
