I think I played that hand well because most players at that venue are a bit spewy; most play at pub games, and I don't think folding such a strong hand is possible against these player, perhaps a leak in my game but i'm ahead a vast majority of the time.
the player ended up getting a T and sucking out on me; i wasn't that fussed because i thought a played it optimally but one of the other players disagrees; he thinks that i should have raise it much more, like maybe 6-7 BB so that i scare of those hands; if i did raise it that much I would take down the pot a vast majority of the time, but win much less, whereas going 4BB gives opponents the opportunity to call with a worse kicker or attempt to bluff me with QT. I'm not sure whch play would have more EV. He believes that it is good to bet 5BB+1 for every limper preflop and bet pot after the flop, he thinks being really aggressive like that works, and it does for him; he seems to do well and players at the table are too scared to get involved with him, even if they think he is bluffing
they don't want to risk that many chips. opinions?
