Why must people be fools and call a large raise with 2-7's pre-flop?
If you have JJ and all over cards (A, K, Q) come on the flop and you are staying in to make a set...you are the fool my friend

i need to find a medium
are you being semi-aggressive? this is my style of aggressive play
if you raise preflop...and you believe you still have best hand after just raise 2/3's of pot....if callers then you must figured out what they could be drawing at and if the turn brings nothing for them...fire another 2/3's of pot in there, this will "usually" get the under pairs and low flush draws out, maybe even TPWK's ....and if no one is raising you, throw another 1/2 pot bet after the river.
so many times if you just bet again after the river most players dont believe you coulda been betting all the way with nothing and muck their hands or you kick yourself because your A high got beat by a pair of twos...if only you woulda fired another bet...he probably woulda folded his pair 2 after missing his draw/flush draw after river...try it
