      I am often in this situation: The SB just completes. I have an above average hand and when the flop comes, I hit part of it. I am probably the favorite in this hand, but the SSS seems to say I can't bet because I don't have top pair, top kicker. So I wonder how strict this is? The problem is, if you don't bet, sooner or later SB will take a stab at the pot and then you have to lay down your cards. Any thoughts, please?
