    Hi WiCD! Preflop with KK, I need to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper (1k chips). I don't want to raise to less than this or I can be giving the opp the correct odds to be in the pot. On the flop, since I raised pre, I need to make a standard c-bet on the flop of 1/2 pot. Yes, there is a made straight possible, but I have an overpair to the board and I need to price out any draws to a straight. If I check and the opp hits a straight by checking behind, it's my own fault that I lose the hand. If the opp raises, then I can re-evaluate and either call their shove or fold (depending on a read of the opp.. none given, and this information IS critical). Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

      Oh, yes, 3-bet flop is much better than the check-raise, and my hand was not good enough to slow play! And also preflop bet.
      Thank you very much for your advice!
