      I call here with the intention to setmine

      I hit virtual nuts here and decide to slowplay and keep the both in the pot as long as possible...so I call on the flop...

      I dont like that minbet on the turn...if I want to get the most out of this hand I need bigger pot and it seems to me like they are trying to see a cheap river with their Ax hands...I raise it up to a size I hope both will find ok to call...sadly EP2 folded..I was aiming to have decent pot/stack ratio to get EP1s stack in comfortably on the river...I miss that call from EP2

      Im not sure will he be comfortable with overbet here if he has Ax...he is loose, but probably isnt calling that strong...or so I think...I bet something close to pot which I think will leave him comfortable to call since 6 doesnt change much and he will have something left to play with...should I have made an overbet or a bigger turn bet in this hand?

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Your flop and turn line is fine and we can even consider raising the turn bigger because UTG+1 is deeper with us and that turn brings in some draws and lots of TP that can pay up.

      As played just shove the river because UTG doesn't have that much behind and a shove versus an almost pot size bet is not that much different.
