      Hello logowini,

      Flop: CB the flop is standard here. That you have nuts doesn't really give you the reason to Check behind. We need still to protect and get value from worse.

      As played
      Turn: Raise the turn, we planning to get value not just few cents from the guy with such a strong hand.

      As played
      River: What's the purpose of the small raise? I'd rather just ship it directly here cause if he has any kind of hand he is calling you and if he doesn't have a strong hand he ain't going to pay you anyways. Just unlucky that he had the quads.

      Best Regards.

      We give away a lot of value with our monster hands if we check back flops and refuse to raise turns. The mistake most nanostakes players make is calling too much, that means they will call when they won't bet. Which means that you cannot trust them to build a pot for you therefore you can only get paid by betting.
