      dont slowplay when u already have the money trapped in the pot from both. If the 2nd guy was after u, then u might slowplay, otherwise u played well.

      Hi,


      I think slowplaying is only better if you think BB is psychotically aggressive, like he has air there a lot and he won't care that you both called his potsize bet he'll continue to fire anyway.

      Your line is fine, NH.


      Hope it helps.

      Standard slowplay spot imo, there is no turn that you dont want to see, if he bet smaller I will raise as well

      Hi,


      Against loose players no card under a T really is safe since both of them could very well have any sort of gutshot.

      Coupled with the facts that cards higher than a T could scare them, that bad players aren't known for making good folds with stuff like 76/gutshots, even overpairs if they have that, and that we have no guarantee they will put anymore money in 3-way if they whiff the turn, I'd rather take my chances at getting value on the flop unless like I said, BB is really aggressive and I count on him committing everybody on the turn.


      Hope it helps.
