      BB had 10, 10 (full house, tens over Kings).
      Hero had K, A (full house, Kings over Aces).

      On the flop i decided to check/call. On the turn, i hit possible nuts and decided to continue slowplaying. On the river, i faced a bet. Obviously had to raise/broke. Is the raise on the river is good enough? And do i need to maybe small bet on the turn?

      I think slowplaying IP is fine here, since he could not have better aces then you. After the turn ace I think checking behind is fine. It was lucky for you that he spiked his set since otherwise this would be a pretty, but just 4 bb worth of the nuts.

      Also Jokerstars :s_confused:

      Hello LuckyDimes,

      I guess I'd still bet the turn to start to build up the pot. Otherwise I even would shove the river, maybe sometimes we get the Call. The point is that when he Calls our raise there anyways then often times he will also Call the shove. Those players are just too bad on those limits.

      Best regards.
