      Hi all

      What's your opinion on this hand?

      After the flop I figured I had a lot of outs so decided to bet, everyone just limped in. Same on the turn, make a 1/3 pot sized bet and again everyone limps in.

      At the river, even though I have a pair of Aces, I decided to check, luckily and unexpectedly everyone else also checked. I won with a pair of Aces.

      Thanks a lot

      Dont post results.
      In unraised pots you can raise flop bigger (I make it near potsize usually) - is it right to do?
      Also you can bet bigger on turn (or not bet at all).
      River: you are likely ahead , unless someone has slowplayed his monster. As you were aggressor on flop and turn, you may valuebet smallish (about 1/3 of pot).

      Please don't post the results.

      Preflop: Raise it up. (You can have a look at the BSS pf chart again)

      Flop: It's a 6 handed pot. you will get call here 99% of the times. just check for a free card.

      Turn: The same as on the flop.

      River: This is the only street (post-flop) that I would think about betting. since there are 4 players in the pot I'm not sure we have the best hand so I would probably C/C too.
