      Hey, My opponent in this hand is always betting pot size when he is in a hand.

      Hi,


      Well it looks pretty straightforward to me, you have a read that he has "a hand" when he bets pot and he did, so you have two options: either you think you can get him off part of those hands by raising and call it off, or you don't, in which case the way you played it is fine.

      If you define "a hand" as anything that connects with that board include weak pairs and draws you're way better off going broke on the flop. If you define "a hand" as a top pair, you're never getting him to fold it so seeing a turn and reevaluating is fine.


      hope it helps.
