  • Flopped full house, now what?

    0.25$ 45-man SnG Early Stage (level 1) Did I play this right? After I played I thought maybe the final value-bet was too large.

    I think you played is fine.
    The river bet isn't too big. I even think you can make it bigger, maybe even overpot it, so it looks like you are trying to steal a chopped-pot.

    Any A will certainly call and any other hand will not call any bet whatever size, if they are half a decent player.

      I guess that makes sense. I thought I should allow him to call if he had a hand like KK or KQ but it's unlikely. Thanks!

        I think you played it right. You could bet the turn, hoping villain has an Ace with a lower kicker or tries to complete his flush-draw/ straight-draw etc. This creates a bigger pot and therefore gives you more value.

        However, if villain is a aggresive player, I would also check the turn and re-raise if he bets again.

          I'd have bet less on the river (1/3 to 1/2 pot). The reason for this is that I don't want the opp to be pot-committed... which can make them fold easier. I want my bet to get paid off.

            Good comments! It was early so I didn't know if he was aggresive, betting the turn was definitely an option. Actually I wanted him to get a free card and complete his flush/straight, does that make sense? I also thought the last bet was too large but didn't really think much about his pot-commitment. Solid advice.
