Default Re: Bottom set on fairly dry board

you want to get all the money in though. why would you need to control the pot? you dont want to fold do you? raising is the best way to do this. i doubt hes folding unless he is raising very light, so get it in

Calling is ridiculous, pump it up. 110-120ish is what I'd do.

I would also raise, but I don't think calling is ridiculous. The main question is how best do we get it all in. Some villains are more likely to bluff or semi-bluff than call a big bet with a strong draw or TPTK -- so, it's often very read-based whether to 3-bet or call when you have position with a big hand and are c/r on the flop. Here, I raise b/c I think there are enough draws that I want to charge, and also b/c I think there are enough big hands this particular guy might have that will give me action with a 3-bet. But, if the board were dryer, and/or if I had a different read on the Villain, then a call might be best.

Okay, its definately not ridiculous, but I find more reason to raise than call basically due to the flush draw. I might sc a more dry board. Definately.

I would probably raise here to about 150ish. If he is a pretty bad LAG then he isn't getting away from TPTK as they are always glued to their "real hands", and if he does have draw, you are overcharging him.

Call a re-raise shove.
