    Hi milehigh! With AQ, I want to make a std raise here, which for me at the blind level will be to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper. With one limper, I'll raise to 2100. I don't want to raise less than this because it will help to give the opps the right odds to outdraw me. The flop gives me top pair/top kicker. When the opps check to me, I'm going to make my standard c-bet of 1/2 pot. The turn gives me trips and once again, I'm going to make a 1/2 pot bet. The reason for this is that if the opp has a straight draw or flush draw, I want to be sure that they are getting the wrong price to draw. The river completes the flush and the opp that has been very passive in this hand now leads by shoving. This throws up a red flag to me, as a passive opp shoving will have hit a better hand than me much, much more often than not. Due to this, even though I have trips, I'm going to muck the river. I also still have an 18BB stack, which is very playable. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
