If you think your opponent has a big hand, why would you bet small in order to prevent him from folding? He isn't folding a set, quads, or straight flush draw on the flop or turn.



I think a three card straight flush draw after the flop would seriously consider folding to a big bet with two aces on the board. If you are holding the third ace with a big kicker, or the monster pocket aces, it is in your best interest to give your opponents a chance to catch up.

I would not be afraid or embarassed to ask how the jackpot promotions work. There are so many flavors of promotions, that players would probably appreciate the refresher.

You may also be able to work out a "Codeword" with the others if you have a potential jackpot hand, and need folks to call and check it down.

Most cardrooms are too smart for that, and will invalidate any jackpot if they catch you doing this.

Thanks you DRich for this straightforward tip. I'll bring this to the poker table next time. Actually, I really like poker, but I think poker doesn't like me. I have lost some money, but here I am again waiting to go to the nearest casino.
