      UTG2 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1.25, MP3 folds, CO calls $1.25, 3 folds, MP1 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($8.6) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($19.1) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $37.6.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, tens(T T).
      MP1 shows a pair of fives(7 5).

      Hero wins with three of a kind, tens(T T).



      I've faced spots like these a lot of times. I'm on the river, with the nuts, and the pot is about my stack, maybe a little larger. What is more profitable, to make a 50% continuation bet or to push?
      Or maybe betting more on flop and turn is better?
      yeah, i kind of have an issue with bet sizing.

      If river was blank, like 9s, then you can shove, since that case player can call you down easily with Tx and weaker hands, but since A is scare card I think half potsize bet is better, since with 75s I really doubt he would call your shove
