      I believe I made a mistake here, again with QQ. I hit the flop pretty well and with $1.25 in the pot and $1.23 behind, I'm thinking about trapping him (betting a bit less on the flop to shove on the river). However, the chart says I should have bet around 3/4 pot (so I should have shoved). I believe my mistake here was to give him the odds to call to complete his possible draw or hit an overcard. Right?

      Thanks

      Hey outspan,

      The description you have provided here is actually what I wanted to type so basically you have to 1) extract max value and 2) negate people the odds to suck out on you

      Best regards,
      Gerv
