hi adam i dont play at your level but missed the bad play
although you have trips theres 2 high spades
and there is $200 in pot unless you want to gamble its a good
move in my book well played 8)

i don't see the bad play either... you flop trips on a tricky board. So could be continuation betting with 10 J or the flush draw..

i'm the same, if they want to hit an up and down or a flush draw they are paying for it

By bad play do you feel you should have checked the flop and induced a bet from villan so as to get all the money in?. As it happens it went in anyway, well done. No bad play either way IMO.

Its not a bet to price out flush/straight draws, its a bet to make you look weak/chasing. Its to make the other person with AA think ''why would he push all in with a set if he wants paying off? My AA must be good''

I think its not a bad play but obviously high risk, if he had QQ KK you can look a fool :lol: but in this case he just opened the betting, it wasnt a reraise so his range is wider.
Also alot of poor players wouldnt of folded 10sJs in that spot.

I think its the perfect bet to catch a poor player who has aces,,,he should pass cos its too dangerous but the overbet disguises your hand and he maybe puts you on a flush..for what its worth (and that aint much) I would have played it exactly the same
Flair for show nutz for dough...better to be lucky than good

its a kangaroo outfit :o .

this was an excellent response i got from a red hot player...................

this line is terrible because:

-its incredibly hard to balance
-it ensures that when you do balance it that you are narrowing your opponents already strong range to the strongest range you can.
-if you don't balance it you are incredibly exploitable.
-he will never fold out "worse" with this line
-worse will call, but not nearly as much as would call with reasonable sizing.

i like to call it the paris hilton. pretty, but dude cmon you could have done wayyy better
