    Default live 1/2 at local dogtrack

    pulled a allniter as table was seemingly loose and profitable with some deep stacks avg was 200 bbs
    so far the game was decent started playing at 7pm and it was about 4am when this situation came up. it was not uncommon to open to $15 and get 4 callers cuz of stack sizes.
    i am in HJ with 220bbs roughly, folds to me and i open to $15 with TsTc and get calls all the way to BB who completes. also CO is a 5/10 reg who is pretty aggro IP and reads somewhat well vs. typical player, BTN is older white lady who plays the nuts only and SB and BB are passives who have been running pretty well. all have about 200 BBs other than CO who has around 300-325 at start of hand. Flop come Js 3s Td , checks to me and i bet $20 (pot is $60 on flop) and CO raises to $75 fairly quickly. it folds back around to me and the pot is $155 with my stack at about $400. at the time i knew if i re-raise i would blow him off his hand and he raises HEAVILY with JJ preflop, so i thought he has 33 or a FD. since hes aggro i assumed by his physical tells that he had a draw as he was fairly nervous when he made the raise, so i decide to flat and re-evaluate on the turn. sure as shit the flush hits, board is now Js 3s Td Ks. with the pot at $210, i check and he snap shoves. he has me covered and i have roughly $325 left. i watch him for about 20 secs and he looks scared shitless, what i wanted to see is if he had the nuts or if my Ts was live, i quickly determine im not getting the right price and show him what i folded as soon as he saw my cards he sighd in relief and showed me the 78 of spades. i guess i want to know what my raise size should be on flop? whats our plan when it bricks on turn? i have no history in that situation.

    Bet more on the flop. 3/4 pot or more. Jam his raise. You have a very strong hand and you deserve a big pot.

    As played hypothetically, if it had bricked on the turn you need to bet enough to deny proper odds on the flush draw.

    In a live game I'd be looking to get the money in asap and these guys will call anything. Your bet gives him 4 to 1 pot odds on the flop call, more than enough to chase a flush. Bet the pot, he'll call here.

    i thought of that, but he is a competent player and wont raise if i pot it, just call and he will pot turn when he hits if not shove, so i bet small in hopes of being raised, then i was going to jam over his raise. i guess i got exactly what i wanted but couldnt pull the trigger to jam it as he was running fairly well, 3 or 4 chased flushes he made so far in the past 4 hours or so. yea i def. should of jammed i think he would of folded and i could of picked up the pot right there which would of been nice.

    It's not so much about making him pay as it is about the value of playing more streets vs getting the money in pretty darn good on the current street.

    When considering spots where you can get all the money in without making a really silly over-bet you should consider the value in having money behind or not for the next street.

    Here you're out of position and will have to guess at a lot of turn cards. I would just get the money in because I think he gets the best of it by playing the turn with money behind.

    Thats a very good point, and something ive never really considered. I appreciate you taking the time to explain that. I agree totally that he definetly benefits by seeing a turn card with money behind (and alot at that) considering stack sizes. So was my thinking process flawed then? In the moment I felt like flatting was best play to use his aggresion against him and by not 3bing him on flop it makes my hand look somewhat weakish on the turn and I think he fires alot of turns that brick his range. Should I be thinking along the lines that you explained here more often than not? Or was that just about the worst turn card I could of seen?

    on drawy boards like this, there's a lot of bad turn cards that can cause villain to shutdown with the weaker part of their flop stackoff range, there's a lot of draws that'll pay off now (but maybe not later), and there's enough combos of hands we can get value from so just keep trying to get the money in the middle until it is.

    $20 into $60 with stacks as deep as they are is not trying hard enough.

    Ok, so I should get the money in when his equity is higher as hes more likely to stack off now vs. on the turn when his equity drops substsntially? If action follows as it did just different numbers, and I lead for 50 he pots it to 120, brings pot to 240, my play iswhat?? Ship it? I have 250 behind after he makes it 120. Is that about right??

    bet more on the flop because they wall call with any pair T+ and any 4+ out draw. stacks are deep and we are multiway with the effective nuts. shove over any flop raise because we are in good shape against their calling ranges and most raising ranges on this flop won't fold. don't fold your hand face up because that is giving your opponents free information and they wont always return the favour as this guy did.
