    In regards to the 5♣️2♣️ hand, what sorts of value hands are you playing this way in this spot? I am trying to work more check raising into my game. It seems to be the last thing I think about often times but this seems like a great spot to work it in.

    Yes it is good to @ me thanks!

    I will check raise with a fair amount of top two and set hands as well but I tend to do that on boards where I don't think that I will get folds, like for example when the top pair card is a Q or higher. Like K62 with K6.. this is not a spot that I am raising 25 as I dont expect to get folds from KJ or KQ as say 952 where a 9 struggles to hold on. SO yes the is approach is wildly unbalanced but does make a ton of $$. Bart

    Hey @bart, apologies that this is from a while ago but in this pod you talk about a rec player showing aggression on the flop (bet -3betting) and then betting the same amount (or smaller) on the turn as a tell-tale sign of strength. Did you mean to say weakness? Not trying to nit-pick but the villain in your example showed up on the river with middle pair (after again betting a similar amount on the river when the turn and river brought over cards) so just wanted to clarify that you see this often from rec players as a sign of weakness?

    @thejuice77 when I said tell tale sign of strength I meant that it reveals the strength of hand not that IT IS strength. So yes, a bet on a later street that is the same size or less is a tell tale sign of weakness. Bart
