      again with a set, i often feel like im scaring off my opponents by my raises, so in this one should i have opted for maybe a call turn, raise river? also with a strong hand, how much should i raise if i see myself as way ahead? i normally raise 3x opps. raise but here it felt a little too much... i just don't really know how much i should be raising post flop..

      I would call the turn but I guess a raise is fine.

      You could raise like 3/4 or 1/2 the pot. Not his raise but the pot. But it all depends on how drawy the board is.

      Hello DrDunne,

      Rather Call the turn. He is very often going to Bet/Fold with his TP type of hand. And we shouldn't be scared of many hands here anyways. Not that many draws possible. Also we will be able to ship the river anyways.

      But of course raising ain't purely off if you expect the opponent to pay you.

      Best regards.
