      hmm..

      my first thought of this is that his bet is a little suspicious, such a small bet compared to the pot size, looks like he is trying to create value. Maybe he has a Q, I would think. That, or he is building pot for a flush? But, since you do have ten full, its probably the nuts at this point, unless your opponent has QT, and ONLY QT. [edit, or QQ] =)

      According to strategy, if someone bet in front of you, you would push all-in. I might do that, or at the very least, I would raised his $0.10 X3 on the flop. $.10 for him to see turn is too cheap. I think it depends on how you feel about whether he will call you all in on the flop, since that's what you want.

      But by turn, I think I would push all in regardless.

      Minraising him doesn't make any sense.

      You could slowplay since FH is strong enough to believe you won't get dominated with opponent's outs...

      So, I see two options here, you slowplay and call flop, but push turn or you push flop as you would with other hands you could have raised with. I personally dislike slowplaying with SSS and would decide for second option, specially if villain is unkown.

      I would rather raise the flop since it's quite drawy and he willl stick it with draws a decent amount of the times ( drawing dead btw ;) ) and is more likely to go with them on flop than on turn.

      but please, don't minraise , doesn't make any sence, raise for value or just call to slowplay.

      Thanks to all. I minraised because I wanted to keep villain interested so that I could get value from the monster hand. I was worried that he'd fold to an all-in.

      But I can see now that a min-raise doesn't achieve much. Will either slowplay or make a proper raise next time.

      Thanks again.

      Hi Tim64,

      Do not slowplay and play straightforward!

      As played, Raise his flop bet as though you would make a normal c-bet here.

      Although you got ''the nuts'' you achieve nothing but giving them an opportunity to give you a bad beat if you MinRaise them.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
