hey guys and gals, jus need some comments/analysis of the line i took.

am not of slowplaying, especially when u flop the "nuts", so my plan was as usual: bet bet shove (imma PIG)

what do u guys think of the betsizing on the flop and turn?
wanted to puke when the heart came on the river, but i think i had to shove for the rest of villain's chippies, n pray that he/she did not backdoor into a flush.

thanks and GL y'all

Hey wikked

I would not have taken any different lines with respect to actions, but I would have sized my bets and raises had I played this hand in your place.

I would raise the flop larger. Think of the hands that he bets out and is going to call facing a raise. Does he call those hands facing a larger raise? I would be inclined to say yet.

Similarly I would bet the turn a smaller proportion of the pot. Firstly the pot would be larger given my flop raise size, but secondly, look at the pot to stack situation you set up on the river. You don't need to be betting so large to have them committed.

These are small points. The general point is that the player led into a multiway pot on a coordinated board and you have the nuts. In that situation, being a pig is the way to go. Oink oink.
