      Hero raises to €0.08, 2 folds, MP3 calls €0.08, CO calls €0.08, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Final Pot: €4.59.


      Results:

      Hero shows a pair of queens(A Q).
      CO shows a pair of queens(Q K).
      Hero wins with a pair of queens(A Q).



      So that's how I've been playing TPTK everytime the turn/river card happens to be harmless. When I get called like that I either just win the pot or lose to 2-pairs and sets. Is the pot too big for my hand ?

      This depends on your opponent, if he's a station like this guy, then it's fine to play for stacks.

      Sometimes it's better to slow down, though.

      turn a bet is really a must to protect from FD.. but is it better to play river by check/calling or just throwing block bet you get value by betting from Qx hands or even Jx hands.. but betting to much on the river put you on hard let go if you got reraised big since pot is already bloated.. to me villains play here looks like top pair set type of hands..

      Hello elda420,

      Well, if you going for such Bets then there is not much to do than ship it for value. :) Or another option let him bet with some missed draw.

      Best Regards.
