      Nice hand. :) Only 55 and a better T beat you on the Flop. Often your Opponents will call you with any Pocketpair or an 5 here.

      If you always bet your decent made hands you will not go too far wrong.

      Normally with SSS you know on the flop whether or not you want to put all your chips into the middle. To this end I will apportion my bets (often its AI on flop of course) so as sot make each bet easily callable.

      eg. In your posted hand you probably need three bets to get the money in unless someone obliges you with a raise. Therefore I'd bet 0.5,1.25,3.

      If the flop was very drawy I'd bet up to pot-size so as to get as much money in as possible in case villain's draw misses and I probably lose any river-action.
