      This is a rare example of me feeling I should stray from MSS rules. The button is unlikely to have more than 2 outs on the flop, so playing rope-a-dope seems right to me. He is quite likely to have a pair due to the preflop action, but should be less inclined to put in more money if raised on the flop. On the turn, I know the button has no outs, so it's about maximising the pot size. If the button has a small to medium pair (or less), a raise here might be counterproductive. On the river, I feel a bet is likely to be called rather than raised, but check-raises often get called by players who have led all the way (I must stop making that mistake myself). Interesting how I got a more tilty response than the call I was hoping for. I suppose he assumed I had a jack and felt he could bluff me off it. Not a difficult final call. :)

      Hey,

      I would just bet the Flop like 9 cents to get some money in there, now you are relying on 2 players to bet out for you as bluffs while they can raise you with PPs or unpaired hands. ( I think unpaired hands are more likely to call your bet than betting themselves )

      On the Turn you can start check/minraising as he is never folding a full house so you can shove the River

      Best regards,
      Gerv
