      River: ($4.35) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Not sure if I played this ok or not.
      Should I bet the flop bigger to protect against his draws, he was really loose?

      Well the stack was quite high, and I guess I'm not getting away here with 3-kings, and here I was really scared he would make his draw.

      i like it a little bit bigger preflop. 40 is nice. though 32 is fine too because u got position anyway, but in case utg calls u probably get 2 more callers and its not nice to see flop 4handed. so 40 in the end might give a bit more protection and of course bigger means more value :)

      on the flop i like ur bet. no slowplay here sincet here are some turn cards which might actually hurt us here. so 3/4 on the flop is nice. i dont think he ever folds a hand like aj or in general jx. turn is a nobrainer shove. the 5 is a total blank and he shud call everything he called on the flop. u got it in with the nuts here so well played =)

      Hello Resilence,

      Preflop: You could 3bet it a bit bigger but overall it ain't a huge difference, the 3bet size is already forcing them to make mistakes but we might want to drag some guys along.
      Postflop: Not much to comment, you could even Bet the flop smaller cause he will have hard time calling with a lot worse and at the same time we will be able to shove the turn anyways.

      Best Regards.
