      Ok so this is a pot I played vs fish and reg. Reg is nitty 12/10. I don't want to sqz here since I think reg's range is quite strong.
      I flop top set which is nice.
      I decide not to raise the flop, keeping both the fish and the reg' whole ranges in, getting as much money in the pot as possible. If I raise, I risk losing the fish and the weaker range of the reg.
      Turn: When reg checks and fish bets, I see his money go in anyway, since he only has 3$ left. I don't think he's folding his draws here.
      So instead of raising, I decide to only call to give the reg the chance to come along with his mid strength hands, like overpairs, AJ, maybe even AT. If reg had bet, I would certainly had raised since I see his money going in most of the time.

      So, whaddyathinK? Should I put in a raise somewhere?

      Hello M1rCea,

      Raise the flop and that simple is the strategy there. :) We want to play for the stacks. Or otherwise Raise the turn! MUST RAISE! Suffering from your own mistakes and being greedy. :P

      Best Regards.
