      I play very many hands and roll over the last 1,4k hands i have 30/28 playing NL2 and NL5 mainly 6max, but also fr

      Preflop:
      I had raised very much this session, so I decided to l/c with my suited ace.
      Flop:
      I figure "Great, bet and raise, now we are going all in" so I raise too. Trying not to scare people away I only bet 3x the raise. I am thinking many aces are calling/pushing, and also alot of strong flush draws.

      What should I be thinking(and therefore doing) to get max value/protection?

      Hi Painterman,

      Preflop: Why are we open limping here? It shouldn't matter that you raised much. If you think you can't open the hand you should simply fold it. By limping you give away the strength of your hand, initiative and a good chance to take down the pot (preflop/postflop).

      As played raising that flop is fine and bet size is ok. If called we can play for stacks on the turn.
