      Hi all

      Been getting this quite alot recently. I hold Ak AQ AJ and raise if sss allows.
      Playing sss I raise the norm amount pre flop, board comes eg 7 4 2 rainbow. I push all in contin bet and they call with over pocket pair.

      Is it best to bet smaller and then get away if raised or am I playing it right by pushing ?

      Comments welcome thanks guys

      read the articles again.when u push u actually overbetting so its not the right to do.

      Example:

      Hero 2$ UTG
      Villain 10$ BTN

      hero raises to 0.40c every1 folds, BTN calls 0.4 , SB BB folds

      pot 0.95
      HERO (1.60$)

      1.u said that u push than u actually bet 1.6 into 0.95$ pot...not making any sense...u are only going to be called by a better hand, or by a big time fish who doesnt even have a draw.

      2.correct play here is to bet arround 1/2 pot.it varies when u hit ur TP and flops come a drawie...like 2 suits or 3 running cards.so u have to bet a little more so u wont face a difficult decision on turn, unless the 4th card complete kinda draw and that becomes marginal w\out special reads c\fold.

      after u bet around 1/2 -2/3 pot and u got reraise or called than it divides into two:

      1.u hit ur pair - reraise all in flop\shove turn
      2.u didnt hit - fold flop\check fold turn

      please do not hesitate i hope it answer ur inquires.

      Thanks very much. Your explanation is great. It's all very clear now. I play strict SSS probably with this exception. If i'm honest what I described at the start is probably what I do when on tilt without realising. Defo look out for that. Thanks so much for taking the time I am very grateful.
