      Hi guys,

      So I won this hand but felt I could have got a lot more value by not 4betting OTF. It was a bit silly really as villain would likely only call with a set or maybe even some two pairs if the player is a little fishier. What are your guys' thoughts?

      As a general rule I prefer to slow play a monster hand like this with position against single opponents on dry boards. Here you are vulnerable to some draws and you're out of position against a loose player. I reckon its ok to play it fast and try and get the money in.

      would do the same.
      There´s no way i would let the villain get another card without making him pay.

      Raise on flop has to be bigger than a click back. Calling .14 into .76 (I am tired, so forgive me if my math is wrong) is way too juicy of odds to offer for OESD’s, FD’s and Gutters to continue on this board. .42 to .48 should be a about right. Sets up an easy turn shove.

      I’m a little confused with the maths here Gridiron. It was a raise of half the pot, so not a click back (assuming that means min raise) .. more like half the pot. Though I do understand that I should be betting more here do to flush and straight draws.
