      Hi

      I would bet more on the flop and turn. Especially on the flop. With TPTK with more than 1 player I want to shake them off as soon as possible.

      Hi Mugge88!

      I would bet $1.10 on the flop and check/call on the turn. By slowing down on the turn you get the most value out of worse hands and lose the minimum against better hands. You don't want to get raised on the turn. If he checks behind on the turn you have an easy value bet on the river.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Normally I would like Puschkin's line there, but then it's NL10 and people can call you down with Ax, KQ or whatever, so betting every street might give you more value.
