      MP checks, Hero???

      this card doesnt change much although it looks a bit ugly but the only straight he can have is with KQ which already had me otf.

      my question is how should i proceed with the hand? he will play his sets and straights the same way and so i obviously can get paid by sets, the problem is i expect sets to ship it in on the flop for value and protection vs my SDs and pair+GS hands. when he calls my raise i immediately thought it was strong but i'm not sure now what to do on this turn. is it check back for pot control and hope he value towns himself with a lower set/TPTK/2pair or should i just keep betting to get the money in?

      Hi DrDunne,

      I would continue betting here. We are losing our stack vs KQ anyway and villain can have plenty of 2p that would just call flop. So we can bet 1/3 pot or just ship it.

      You cant really check for pot control when you have less than a PSB left to play for.
