      I would bet around 17-18 on flop and 2/3rds of the pot on turn and make a close to pot valuebet on the river because the draws completed.

      I think bet more like $36 on the turn, about2/3 pot size, which will give you a bigger bet on the river. Looks to me like he isn't letting go.

      PF raise = 4 x bb normal right? So why do you bet 7 and not 8?

      On the turn you have trips but there is a flush draw on the table. Why do you bet for only 15$ with a 22$ pot? I would bet like 22$ at least.

      Turn looks good imo. You have the nuts so you just want him along.

      River i would bet more. Like 100$ or more.

      I think you are right. I should have bet more on all streets. That's why I posted this hand :D I didn't find the right balance between getting value and don't scaring away the flushdraws. Thanks guys!

      @ Xzorius: On limits NL200 and above I only bet 3.5BB or 3BB because preflopraises normally get more respect on these limits#

      Good luck at the tables!

      This turn bet looks suspicious imo.

      Because it's just a little less than 1/2 pot. It means either weak or very strong hand (so villain never knows) but its unusual so forces him to make some extra thinking imo.

      I don't think that it matters if I bet 25 or 26 (which would be a "normal" half potsize bet). Other thoughts?

      Good luck at the tables!

      i think the bet on the turn should be biger in order to get maximum profit on the river ... i guess the key of the hand is on the turn when you decide how big you can make the pot without making him fold . i would have tried a bet between 30 and 40
