      If there is something I am not sure about than it definitely is post-flop play in free-play situations. In this one I happened to complete a three of a kind with one of my community cards on turn and was clueless about how to proceed. Decided to play it aggressively, but was unsure about how much to bet and when to stop, if necessary. The result was very, very confusing to me. Can you believe my opponent? Did I make a mistake?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 2, 4.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.10, 6 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.25) K, 7, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks.

      Turn: ($0.25) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, UTG2 calls $0.10.

      River: ($0.45) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.30, UTG2 raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $1.80, UTG2 calls $0.30.

      Final Pot: $4.05.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, twos(2c 4d).
      UTG2 shows a full-house, kings full of twos(Kd Kh).

      UTG2 wins with a full-house, kings full of twos(Kd Kh).

      First of all we do not really focus on results. We are evaluating your plays so leaving out the results is increasing the quality of the opinions given by players and judges on your hand.

      With 3 of a kind, I would play this very aggressively so I start out betting $0.25 on the Turn to get as much money as you can from Villain.

      If he raises you on the Turn, you can safely go all-in there.

      As played, nice hand bet/shoving on the River. But in case he doesn't raise (which mostly happens), you have to bet the maximum in order to get as much money from Villain as possible!
