      If they were willing to put the money in I didn't want to scare them off. Looking back maybe I could have raised the turn, I would have raised any river that didn't pair the board, but in this case didn't know what the player behind was going to do.

      Hi,


      Valuebetting > inducing @ microstakes.

      I'd just raise right on the flop to be honest. They are unknowns, one of them doesn't have a full stack so he's bad and will call usually too much, it's a limped pot so it's way too small for the hand we have, if they have draws and they miss they won't pay off on later streets, and we have no guarantee whatsoever they going to continue to put money in on most turns.

      As played i'd raise the turn once they start to be 1/2 instead of pot. On the river i'm still raising against MP3 he'll call with worse again, we're only beat if he slowplayed a set/two pairs for 2 streets on a monotone board, which is possible but less likely because he'll still raise these hands sometimes.


      Hope it helps.
