      Raise more on the flop - you want to protect your hand. The turn sucks but I don't see me folding with top set. If he has the straight, you know why you should protect ;)

      when i bet in this hand i don't want that they fold!!!With top set i want a lot of player in this hand...but i don't the draw X(
      so perhaps i had to bet 15or16 but not a minpot...

      You want hands like KQ AQ QT etc to call you, but you don't want to get called by KJ/J9 or some weird gutshot straightdraw, that's why you need to raise more on flop to protect your hand and start building a big pot as early as possible. Ofcourse you will have to push on turn and hope that he doesn't have the straight but this situation could've been avoided by betting more on flop.

      Btw. what's the difference between normal ipoker tables and "turbo" tables? does someone know?

      Yes, u need to act quite fast at the turbo's (like within 10sec orso?). You'll play more hands obviously but I for one time out a lot at turbos when I multitable so I try to avoid them. Missed some big pot because of them. :<
