      Flop: ($1.25) 3, 3, 5 (4 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks, CO checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1.25) 7 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, MP3 calls $0.60, CO raises to $1.90, BU folds, Hero folds, MP3 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.45.

      I am betting the turn in order to draw out any slowplayers. What's a better bet size? What's the chance that the raise is a bluff? Should I bet at all?

      Hi,


      You gave up on your hand on the flop already, don't bluff at a blank turn. There is virtually no chance you get the 3 fish to all fold to just one bet with so many draws out there.

      Why do you want to "draw out" slowplayers? It's not like they threaten you or anything, you have AK-high. If they have a monster no big deal, they'll win a small pot, their loss.


      Hope it helps.
