      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has Q:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $1.50, fold, MP calls $1.50, MP+1 calls $1.50, fold, fold, Hero raises to $7.77, fold, UTG+1 calls $6.17, MP calls $6.17, MP+1 calls $6.17

      utg looks pretty darn fishy (32/18), other guys looks pretty darn nitty (7/5) over ~50h sample.

      Hello Tomaloc,

      I'd still Bet the flop smallish something like $14 to invite weaker hands to come along. :D We ain't even deep and can easily ship the turn.

      Best Regards.

      my reasoning on the flop :D

      - the nitty guys will almost always have pp (what else, AK from time to time?) which just want to setmine against my super strong range
      - the fish will have some random hands which he either continues or he doesn't against whatever sizing

      this is mostly about the fish's range imo, the perceived nitty guys are probably just going to ship any sets and probably fold anything else/maybe ship or call A K if they even have that.
      do you think i can lure AJ or whatever with a lower bet? i think that he has random draws more often and i don't want to give decent odds/just want to commit asap.


      also (somewhat unrelated), how excited would we be in a J T 5 flop ;(

      Well but the guy ain't betting with bluffs either I guess nor with worse pairs. :D Can't even be sure if draws Bet. :D

      On the other board I'd even be inclined to just Check/Fold it whilst I see them mainly having better hands and the pot is too huge for our CB and we would waste too much money with it.
