      I wonder what you think of play I made and what would be the most profitable play here? I think unless he has a PP he won't pay me off, but if I show weakness on the flop I might get some...

      Your play seems to have worked here, but I clearly remember Ingol saying "don't ever slow play!".

      Anyway, 4 of kind is such a rare situation that whatever you choose to do won't affect your overall winnings significantly.

      nh :)

      this guy looks really passive from stats AF. maybe you could bet something small on the flop as well.

      Hello Burek,

      Checking behind on the Flop doesn't hurt now and I think it is the best move on the Flop.
      on the Turn however you should bet out like you did so thumbs up. When getting reraised, I think showing weakness is very good with flopped quads :)

      on the River, you face a decision for all your remaining chips done by your opponent, what else you want ? :)

      I think its well played but I let Ingol know that he also has to post here *giggle* :D

      Well, the thing is, I didn't have much trouble putting him AI, because he flopped fullhouse with 88 and we slowplayed each other. :D

      So, I was wondering whether my play was good also against some other opponent and I didn't get just lucky this time.

      :D @ gerv ^^

      i mean.....if the guy is SOMEWHAT thinking your check shows strength, not weakness
      if he is a complete fool, then a check might be ok....

      Generally a bet is better, but against come opponents you can also check...i wouldnt do it :)

      As played bet turn a bit higher to avoid having more than potsize left on the river.

      This is the only time I would ever check behind on the flop. As SSSr you only need 2 streets to go all-in and you have position. So you give him one card and hope he makes a big hand. On the turn you must use your standard lines, or they make notes on you, and you also want value from a draw. (would you ever bet less than 1/2 PS with any other hand? I think not) I would bet 1.2 on the turn and push his re-raise. IMO you got way to fancy in this hand and only got paid because villian hit a monster as well.
      Happy chum hunting!
