Flopping straights or flushes
I never seem to get any good value when I flop these hands. At the moment if im early position ill check and if im acting late ill smooth call. But its usually just checked around to me and ill put in a small turn bet which will scare everyone off. Im beginning to think whether its worth just pot sizing or 3/4 potting the flop to make it look like a steal in the hope people will try to outplay me. This is 6max not full ring if it makes any difference.
What plays do you make when you flop the nuts?
Also, just another quick question which came to mind. When you raise pre OOP with say KQ or a similiar hand with high cards and you get 1 caller. When the flop comes, say, A73 rainbow, or J52 and you miss, do you near enough always fire a continuation bet against a reg (not a calling station/donk), then if were called we can just check fold? Ive recently been playing tighter and bluffing hardly any of the time because I seem to be being called all the time at 10NL.
