Villain 2 - 52/11/0.4 - 29 hands
Villain 3 - 45/21/1.3 - 29 hands
Villain 6 - 9/6/0.0 - 69 hands

My table image has been fairly tight agressive - 16/12/3.0

I decided to slow play this hand (which I almost never do) on the flop then on the turn when the ace hit I thought I would continue the slow play and if he hit the ace he might bet but if he didn't and i bet he might fold. I wasn't sure if i should bet for value or continue to slow play on the river - what do you think?

Hi EmotiveKiwi,

I think I like leading the flop.

This isn't a good spot for a slow play really. It's a limped pot so there is no aggressor. You'll see this flop checked around too often I think. Also when we bet here we have 3 chance for someone to call us. And we are building the pot early so it should be easier to get stacks in.
