      You could choose to semi-bluff raise that flop, but you need to remember that when people limp preflop they are generally playing hands that can make a monster, and one of those could easily be bad enough to slowplay a set on that connected flop.

      I like calling the flop.

      On the turn we are only losing to J8 which is unlikely to be played very often. Bet a real bet, far closer to pot size (~30 cents), in a bet-raise-shove line. Now we make anyone who has 3 of a kind or two pair pay for being silly enough to slowplay on that flop!

      The river is a brick, exactly the card we wanted to see. Continue with near-pot bet in a bet-raise-shove line again.

      Agreed. As played tho, when they both just call the turn it really looks like they don't have anything decent, so i don't mind betting more around 3/5-2/3 pot to entice more calls from crap hands.


      Hope it helps.
