      Here is a situation where I slow played where I perhaps shouldn't have, I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on a better play here? Table is extremely loose passive when limping pre flop however easily scared when basically ANY bet was made, was really awkward.

      Thanks!! :)

      MP+1: 8,750.00
      LP: 1,130.00
      CO: 6,310.00
      Hero (BTN): 890.00
      SB: 2,570.00
      BB: 4,730.00
      UTG: 3,810.00
      UTG+1: 6,700.00
      MP: 6,285.00

      SB posts SB 40.00, BB posts BB 80.00

      Pre Flop: (120.00) Hero has 2h Ah

      UTG calls 80.00, UTG+1 calls 80.00, MP calls 80.00, MP+1 calls 80.00, LP calls 80.00, CO calls 80.00, Hero calls 80.00, SB calls 40.00, BB checks

      Flop: (720.00, 9 players) 3s Ad Ac
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, MP checks, MP+1 checks, LP checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (720.00, 9 players) Kd
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, UTG+1 checks, MP checks, MP+1 checks, LP checks, CO checks, Hero bets 80.00, fold, fold, UTG calls 80.00, fold, fold, MP+1 calls 80.00, fold, CO calls 80.00

      River: (1040.00, 4 players) 5s
      UTG checks, MP+1 checks, CO checks, Hero bets 320.00, fold, fold, CO calls 320.00

      Hero shows 2h Ah (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 47%, Flop 47%, Turn 50%)
      CO shows As 4s (Three of a Kind, Aces) (Pre 53%, Flop 53%, Turn 50%)
      CO wins 840.00
      Hero wins 840.00

      Hi Netrogrant,

      Similarly to the other hand what game is this? Tournament? Live Play? What limits ($ equivalent)?

      Since everyone limped your call is fine as well (and I'm assuming this is a live hand given then preflop play).

      Given how the hand got played I think that we can look at betting slightly bigger on the turn rather than the river. The turn is where many draws can still call while on the river they are mostly folding.

      No worries, it happens :)

      Generally we only do cash game hands here.
