      Potsize bet on flop or just push is my opinion but lets see what judges advice.

      Your bet on flop is too low. 2/3 pot bet on flop and shove it all on turn

      Betting the flop with about 2.20$ would be the best way to play the hand,
      because it is a multiway hand (more than two players at the flop) and there ist an open ended straight draw possible with JT.

      I guess you just doubled up?

      First thing: you got plenty of callers, so the pot is large. This begs for bigger bet on the flop! Obviously you cannot bet 1/3th of it, it won't have any effect (and btw you want to stick your money in asap, right?). Set is an ultimate weapon and you don't need to be afraid of anything, just bet bet bet...

      Here I'd bet something like $1.6 bet on the flop (usual 2/3) and shove any turn.

      And beting 1/3 of the pot is just too suspicious. You have to play every hand of yours the same way while sssing - you're getting very clearly readable if you don't.

      Btw: nice 140bb pot :)

      :D Yeah I did just double up.
      So while SSS there pretty much isn't a thing called a value bet, it's just bet bet bet if you have a "made hand"?

      I was really happy with this hand.
      It's the biggest pot I've won while SSSing.
      There was a acouple of monster stacks and they were just limping with every hand preflop (as you can see MP3 with over $60 on a 5/10c table), :D
      He was asking for me to take his money. :)
