I hit a full house on the flop, but I'm not certain i got maximum value out of it. Could i have played this any different?

Hi Polkadots107!

When I get a flop like this, I may check the flop (could also bet it), but I'm going to bet the turn if it's checked to me again. If the opps have nothing, I'm not going to get extra money anyway, so I want to start building a pot as I can get called by Kx or draws. This way my bet on the river will be higher and I'll get more value if any of the opps do have a hand.

Good luck at the tables.
