    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    What do you think of my bet sizing? I dont like how i cant shove the river, do you ever slow play a set of 5s on that flop if your calling pre?

    It's highly unlikely he is slow playing a set on that turn.
    The only logical hands that beat us on the river have to be JT and QT.
    Snap call and well played.
    I'm probably never slowplaying 55 on the flop, since I'm guessing that you aren't going to continue firing a lot of brick turns.

      Yeah theres not many turns im barreling there with air, i just wanted to see what a good player does with his set there because i know theres some players slow playing a ton at 5nl and i wasn't worried about the set after the turn which would of filled up on the river but i had no idea what he was re raising on the river until he flipped over trips lol.

        Seems pretty standard.

          Yea, I guess I'd be calling the river there too just because there are not many hands that would slow play the turn. I think 2pair+ would be raising if not the flop then maybe the turn. Unless they got scared from exactly AK.

          I'm not sure about the flop cbet though against two opponents; it might be a close one. Although this flop hits our perceived range, it also hits their calling range against UTG open { JJ-22, AQ, KQ, AJs, KJs, QJs, JTs, T9s } betting will get folds 56% of the time from weak pairs TT-22 and we have 10 outs to barrel the turn with, basically hands that improve us to 1 pair or straight (3 Aces, 3 Kings, 4 Tens)
          Against one opponent, it's a good cbet; They will continue with 44% of the time but against two opponents the probability of a fold diminishes

          A: V5 continues to a cbet
          B: V6 continues to a cbet
          P(A U B) = P(A) + P(B) ; probability that atleast one player continues
          P(A U B) = .44 +.44 = 88%

          And if one player continues, we have 54% equity if the turn is an A or a K

            Cheers guys, yeh i kinda thought it might be a check the only thing i dont like about that line is if i hit the turn its gonna be harder to get stacks in and my hand would be face up if they call the turn and i bomb the river.
