Hi Shichi-77!

With this being early in a league game, the word steal should NOT even be a part of my vocabulary... the return will not be worth the risk due to negative league points.

With ATs from the BB, when the SB min-raises, I'm going to call behind and see the flop in postion.

I flop TPTK and when the opp checkst to me, I'm going to make my standard 1/2 pot value bet.

The turn gives me trips, but also brings a flush draw to the board. When the opp checks to me, I will once again make a 1/2 pot value bet. I do NOT want to bet less than this, as the opp can be getting the correct odds to outdraw me. If I give them the right odds and get outdrawn, it's MY OWN fault that I lose the hand.

The river should be a blank and when the opp checks again, I'm going to once again make a 1/2 pot bet.

Standard bets are a key, as I want to keep the opps guessing as to what I'm playing. Making too small of bets and pricing the opps in to draw, is something that I always want to avoid whenever possible.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
