      1. I would check too, hoping for action from low FH/bluff. Even smooth call if someone bets, to maybe keep the third player in the pot/hope they make a full house on turn.

      2. Normal value bet here would be $5 - $6 so you dont scare away worse hands, but I like your thinking here - if he has no ace he is folding to any sized bet, if he has an ace he is calling any bet. I still wouldnt bet more than potsize though

      Hey taifoon,

      gratz on NL100!

      Actually very nice hand! :)

      With quads you can certainly check/call flop and slowplay, but on the turn you have to bet regardless what the board brings if your opponents don't bet, because you have to build up the pot, so I like your potsized bet here.

      On the river, as you said, Ax isn't folding to any bet and non-A isn't calling any bet, so you should maximize your value from Ax hands and shove as you did.

      Regards,
