      Had layed down or lost a couple of pots to this tricky/trappy villian in the hands prior to this, so I decided to try playing a little trappy against him. After I hit the full house on the turn I figured I had him. Anything I could've done differently really?

      Hello GazAsh2002,

      Preflop: His stealing range is so wide here, why don't you just 3bet for value?

      As played
      Flop: Check/Raise should be fine on that kind of board, while we somewhat have to protect.
      Turn: Don't understand why you just don't bet here again? Of course we have the nuts but we don't want him to Check behind either. He is going to pay most of his hands what he called on flop therefore definitely bet.

      As played if turn was checked
      River: Just Check/Shove directly.

      Best regards.
