      Hello DrDunne,

      Flop: Raise the flop and get value from some draws or even sets. :) If they don't have a hand they wont pay you much either. I wouldn't raise a lot but making rather smallish so they would still call with some crap.

      As played
      Turn: I'd still raise it bigger here. :)
      River: Well, what does Call you here? Even if he is a fish. :D

      Best Regards.

      i didn't want to raise the flop because he doesn't often have a set here, and draws might not even call since i hold A :heart: and i am pretty much repping only a flush so i thought no harm in slowplaying 1 street. how big/small shall i make the raise? is 2.5x good enough?

      the turn i decided to stop slowplaying, but how much bigger would you raise it? a potsize raise to like $2.80 is way too big imo so i decided to try and entice him into calling by making it fairly small. i mean it's really hard for him to ever have something on this board..

      on the river i see it is stupid :( but what flashed through my mind was if he has K :heart: x then he probably can't get away, if he has J :heart: x then he might level himself into calling thinking my sizing is bluffy. not that i'm ever bluffing here :facepalm: he's probably never calling anyway.
