      He had cbet 100%, I got no idea why he didn't cbet... I didn't try to slowplay because of the 2 suited cards, but should I be afraid of them against just one opponent?

      I think its well played. If he cbets all the time too, then a check looks strong to me. You've gotta try to get money in the pot. I'd say he was just trying to steal the limpers with junk and gave up on the flop.

      Yea I really thought he was going to check/raise me, that's why I also betted. I agree with you, I think he was trying to steal the limpers.

      Raise preflop, now you can only win with hitting a set! Bet flop was good, only against thougher opponents you can vary your bets (70%) with checks (30%) but we're on NL10 here...

      I´d also make bet on the turn. Some players would play aces that way and you´re gettin all-in on the flop. Some players just go c/c with Q or lower pp. Either way you have to bet to build the pot.
