      i know that cheching here is very risky on that wet board but some times i choose to slowplay the flop for more value...

      should i raise the flop on these boards 100% ?

      Hi W4terman,

      Preflop: Looks fine

      Flop: Considering there was a cbet and a call we should raise here for pure value/protection. We don't need to raise big but I'd make it at least $1.8 or so.

      What more value can we really get by just slowplaying this flop?

      A lot of hands that may stack off or call a raise on the flop will give up on a good amount of turn cards.
