      well, given the drawless board, you could slowplay it till turn.

      I hoped at least 1 of them has A, and reraise.

      I don't think there's money to be made if no one has an ace here. No matter what the turn and river bring (except running kings/queens maybe)

      well, Ace would probably bet himself, so you could come over the top. I agree with SonicXT, but you could give it a try...

      I would have slow played here, not really much to worry you out there. I think that an ace may have bet into you on flop but defo on turn.

      I played full tilt for a little while and found the cash games very tight. The only money I made was on the sng which was a little more loose.

      I find party poker much more profitable especially after finding this site :D

      Probably this is my main problem with SSS on Full Tilt also, i really could use more lose calls preflop.

      Betting here isn´t the worst thing to do here, since we want to build the pot, as long as we hold the nuts. We do not want to see the board get paired, a 3 or a 5, because that would make the board look scary, for every made hand.

      Another point is, that if nobody behind us will bet, he very often will not bet on most turn cards as well. So the chance that somebody (with a weak made hand here, like 77 - 99), will bet is very small. But these hands might be willing to call us here.
