      Hand #1: I play aggressively on the flop (as recommended) in a multiway pot with loose players hoping for a call and get nothing.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $5.22
      BB:
      $5.19

      $2.07
      BU:
      $3.68

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:heart: , 9:spade:
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.04, 4 folds, BU raises to $0.12, Hero calls $0.10, BB calls $0.08, UTG+2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.48) 6:heart: , 9:club: , K:diamond: (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.48, 3 folds.

      Final Pot: $0.96





      Hand #2: After hand #1 I was kicking myself for not slowplaying and I end up hu against an aggro player and just slowplay him, letting him bet into me. My winnings were about the same in both hands.

      1) If you bet flop, then make it 0,3$. No need to make potsize bet on dry flop, since only Kx or two pair would call/raise.
      2) I would lead against two players. Turn: I think you can c/r turn and go with your hand. He would call you down a lot of hands.

      thanks,

      In hand 2) please explain why I should lead into 2 players. Isnt it a sure way to get them to fold making it obvious I have a set?

      Players just don´t believe that you have trips when board is paired and they would call certainly with any pair and some players would float even with A high.

      I also think leading with a bet is right a lot of the time, when you
      hit big you are after whole stacks. so by increasing the pot each
      round slowly maybe, you give them a chance to improve and by
      building the pot you get them closer to being pot committed on
      the river

      Yes, I told myself, that I don't slowplay any hands, because it is diffcult to built pots doing so and you don't protect your hand. Not later than on the turn you have to go for a c/r and if the player has nothing he will fold anyway.

      Besides the line c/c flop// c/r turn seems stronger to me than b/c flop // b/c turn (shove river :D ).
