    I disagree with Jig here. I think that in spots like these, checking the flop leaves a lot of money on the table, and especially when you turn a lock hand, checking or betting tiny is a missed opportunity. Remember, everybody in the pot limped preflop; what are the chances any of them have a betting hand? Very low. Nobody is going to have an overpair, because those would have raised preflop. And a flopped set will be rare, because there are only three combinations of those (44, 44, 44). You're blocking pretty much everything else, because you have a T and a 9.

    It is highly unlikely that anybody at this table is going to try betting out in a 5-way pot, because the best anyone is likely to have here is A4 or a flush draw. It's possible that someone will have a better 9 than yours on the flop, but there are way more worse hands that could call you if you were to bet. I would absolutely bet the flop here, and I would bet big, for basically the same reasons as in this thread:

    When you turn the full house, just bet (bigger) and hope somebody will call. Nobody is going to bet for you, because nobody else is likely to have a full house at this point. On the turn, I think you should bet closer to half-pot, because there are two flush draws and a straight draw that can call you, and you want them to call, complete their draw, go all-in on the river, and lose.

      Hi CZDonkey! I agree with Panicky.... I'm betting the flop here both for value and to see if my opp could have a 9 and higher kicker and will size the bet at 1/2 pot (my std c-bet). If I would check any street, it would be the turn, as giving the opp a free river card most likely won't hurt me. If the opp has been a calling station or aggressive, then I'm betting the turn. If the opp was playing passively, I'd be more likely to check and hope they hit a piece of the river. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
