      Hi BUTTCHIN0707! With 44 and 3 limpers, when it gets to me in the SB, I'm more than happy to complete and try to setmine since the stacks are deep enough to do so. I flop bottom set in a 5-way pot and I absolutely must make a standard value bet here. Postflop bets need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture and with this many opps, I need to make a pot-sized bet, so I will bet 250. The one and only way that I can check is if there is not a single card in the deck that can show up on the turn that can beat me. With a straight draw possible, I have to bet enough to price the opps draws out or if I lose the hand, it's my own fault that I lose. The turn puts even more draws out there with a flush. Once again, with 4+ opps in the hand, I need to make a pot-sized bet, both for value and to protect my hand against the draws. On the river, with only 1 opp now in the pot, I'm going to make a standard bet again. With one opp, this is 1/2 pot, so I will bet 1/2 pot. With the line that was taken, it's a wonder that the opp didn't shove the river and try to represent hitting the draws... and if they do so, bottom set cannot call the shove. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. Slowplaying hands online when there is a card that can beat me... is normally a huge problem and a very large leak for these players, as they don't get value when they're ahead and will only get action if they're beat... so they win a small pot or lose a huge one.
