      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I don't like that much the full pot size on flop. You are just committing yourself there. I'd still bet a bit smaller ~$0,55 or something similar.

      Best regards.

      It put MP1 all-in to bet that much.

      Little weird in terms of my thinking, but I didn't want a spot where he pushes his remaining few chips after UTG2 had called. I am then left in a little bit of a tricky spot?

      Not sure it matters too much, and shouldn't really be a concern?

      Well, if we are betting less then we might even get away. Since PPs are also in their calling range which did hit sets. :) But if we bet like this then most likely never. Plus we obviously representing a very strong hand with making it pot size.
