Default Re: Did I bet this TOO hard? Top set QQ

I like your flop play. On the turn I bet about 75. Will commit you to the hand and not give the correct odds to call with a draw. It is also more likely to be called by a hand like AQ or KQ.
You can't always be terrified of being drawn out on. Bet enough so he can't correctly draw but don't force him out of the pot.

it is very likely to be called by KQ and AQ, along with KJ... all of which will likely call a pot raise on the flop. Draws will also call the pot raise so why not stick in a pot-raise? there's no reason... Hes most likely drawing or has a ten (or air) so i still prefer the pot-raise. Dont just call and let him draw unless your raise just builds the pot needelessly against a competant oppenant and you cant fold sets if bad cards hit.

turn bet is fine. just pot it, maybe check behind if a spade on the turn hits since you have a good redraw
