      Hi!

      How about this hand. Would you proceed on turn, or just check it? I think there is no doubt about river - I would expect win or split at worst in most cases.

      Check floop, check turn, fold if someone bets. You got weakest possible pair/fullhouse and any pair will beat the crap out of you + it may be counterfeited if board pairs. And in this situatyion i would go allin on river (after checking floop/turn) to act like steal.

      You should have checked on the flop as there was more than 1 opponent. If you face a bet on the flop then you should be folding as you're only holding a pair of deuces.

      As played once you got a caller to your raise on the flop you should have checked/folded on the turn.

      Check Flop
      Check Turn
      Bet/Call the River because you got Ten full of Aces instead of Tens full of Deuce ;)

      Please remove the results as this is crucial to our verdicts (it may be influenced by it)

      One minor thing you forgot, to make a continuation bet, you actualy have to bet prefloop ;p

      I'm wondering moe if I'd bet the flop, but I probably would. Now the turn case is really very easy: you can never predict him having quads, so all your moves are reasonable and ok.

      Sorry to see such a bad beat though.

      It's not quads that worry me here but any pocket pair which will beat you here

      And only pp... I don't know if it's ok to bet river without that ace coming, but it's definitely ok on the turn I think.

      Well let's think what this bet can acomplish for us.

      Case 1: he got nothing
      He will most likely fold unless bet will be way too small where it will be profitable for him to keep drawing to fullboat so here we don't win any extra money into the pot but end hand earlier.
      Case 2: he got pair
      He will either reraise or just call if it's low pair, in both cases we are left with 3 outs (ace) and most likely done with the hand
      Case 3: he got ten
      He will call and continue trapping, loosing here.

      I don't really see a point in betting here before that ace as it can't give us any good, may only end hand earlier.
