      I decided to check and slowplay, I know it is bad, but is it that bad on a flop like that?

      I would lead the flop but In my opinion is not bad to check once since it's heads up and a bet will scare him most of the times... but you have to bet the turn to build a pot if you dicide to check flop. River you have go broke, trips are the nuts

      I would try to c/r flop, so check is ok, but when the turn comes you have to lead out with bet to build up a pot. So, bet potsize on the turn and 2/3 of the pot on the river if you get called.

      As played, you have an easy shove on the river.

      Hello Bedoze,

      I like the play and shouldn't hurt you most of all.

      To extract value I play c/c on Flop, c/c on Turn and lead out small ($0.4) to induce a bluff so people will reraise me

      Hero goes all-in on the river
      Well played,

      Gerv
