The villains betting pattern confused me here.
They just called my pre-flop raise, then lead out 1/2 pot.
I've flopped top set, but straight and flush draws on flop.
Villain again only bets 1/2 pot, I think he has o/p or draw.
Turn comes FH for me, villain again bets 1/2 pot
Are the stack sizes to big for me to shove the turn?
If villain has O/P what odds of getting there if I call?

River card double pairs the board, villain again only bets half pot, but if I shove POT, surely they fold with an O/P.
I decided to O/bet the pot rather than shove. Villain -FH

I hope the advice I've had the past few days is paying off

When a villain bets out in this spot i suspect a strong hand, 2 pair, set or overcards.

I think it's usually pretty safe to raise here, get the money in earlier.

We're likely to get a call in which case I make the next 2 streets large. Once the 4 comes I'm going with the hand on any river.

If the villain 3bets us on the flop if we raise then i just go all in.

Hi F1sh4UrCh1p5,

I wanna raise the flop. 1. We have a strong hand and I want to build the pot. 2. The flop is wet and we don't want to give them a cheap turn. It's going to be an easy stack off for value when they 3bet us.
