Pretty much this, except that I love to trap. Sometimes I have to because (I think) I usually
have a tight table image, and if I raise they all fold. Again, it depends on the strength of my hand. If I flop a boat, or even the nut flush (which can still be risky if the board pairs), I tend to check. When I find myself in a looser rhythm with a loose-ish table, standard raise. I play a lot of limit and PL. In limit, there is virtually no trapping. You've got to build that pot.
