    This villain did the perfect slowplay against an agressor (me) Not knowing what the end results were, would you play this hand any differently?

    Preflop I think your play was fine. I probably would have made my flop bet a lot bigger, maybe 80% pot. You have a stack where you can easily afford to do this. If he calls this bet alarm bells would ring for me. If he checked raised I would definitively consider folding. I think the question we need to ask is with what range of hands is the villain calling our bet here and if his range hits that flop is our hand now good enough to continue in the hand?

      The turn bet is WAY, WAY too big. A standard bet sizing is 1/2 pot, so I would bet 1/2 pot on the turn and if raised, I'm folding. If called, I'm checking down the river and folding to a sizable bet.

        I'd often check back the flop. As played, John's right about the turn bet. It's hard to get called by worse (such as flush draws) when you pot it. Bet smaller, or check behind so you can call any river bet, or make one yourself.
