Flop (Kc 3d Js):

Here's why I ask, if I want to re-raise the flop, I'm going to have to put in pretty much my entire stack, because I'll be pot commited no matter what. A flop with two broadway cards isn't the greatest for aces. It's difficult to tell where you are. Flame away.

Yeah it is, it looks to be about $50 into a $75 pot left on the river. I kinda like how you played this by the way, but it's pretty tough to know where you are when people on Everest just mash the pot button constantly and make weird big leads in multiway pots and stuff. Now that I think of it, I actually might like a flop raise better since the guy leading into you only has half a stack, and you can make an easy fold if the guy behind you shoves over the top. But I'm not entirely sure about it.

I dont think you want to fold out the guy behind you on the flop if he has a K. Moreover you don't want to slowdown the pot button masher.

Hmm after the hand was over I felt like I should have raised the flop, but that was results oriented thinking.

The pot masher had J4o, the other guy who was calling had QTo.

Push is fine if you want to win the pot right then and there but as stated above why would you want to slow down a guy that is abusing the bet pot button like its his job. I don't think its slowplaying as much as keeping your customers around. Sure they might get lucky once and a while but if you're unsure of your hand and don't want to commit your stack, you still have a pretty decent chance of winning a large pot here without risking everything on one pair.
