      Slowplaying here is perfectly fine, what a crazy flop to hit xD

      You should bet the turn to build a pot. bet around ½ the pot because if he didnt hit the flush he cant be drawing to many hands and hopefully he will call such lowish bet with anything from midpairs to highcards, and ofc. you should fire again on river ½pot-pot.

      Tough luck he holds pocket jacks =)

      Hey Gredal, really grateful for your posts tonight - it's a big help.

      I suppose the point is: it's ok to slow-play the flop because then I give villain the chance to bet himself, without scaring him away. But, if he doesn't bite, I can't keep checking otherwise I'm not creating any value and eventually I must to try to build a pot, so I should have bet on the Turn (and then the River, as you said).

      Obviously, I can't do anything about the fact he limped in with J,J, but should I make a note of this for future?

      Thanks again.

      i agree with gredal... u can slowplay flop but not turn and river

      BTW: don´t worry if he is slowplaying JJ... he will loose everythink by doing this... and fast

      Hey Tim,

      I think it's useful to make a note of that, yes. Limping with JJ is pretty silly, cause it isn't such a strong hand.

      As was already suggested, bet turn for value.

      Simliar thing happend to me, but I got 2 opponents to put their money in =D

      Hello Tim64,

      I think this is okay played but be aware that you have to ask yourself the question: 'What can the opponent have?' & 'What do I represent here with my bet?'

      Best regards,
      Gerv
