I know this is a super basic hand but what I'd like to see is how every one would have played this hand. Do you bet it or check it if it was you? Thanks for replies.

With 3 to the flop, I don't like the idea of giving out a free card with a broadway draw out there. I don't think that redsfan12 is any threat to you with the call, call preflop moves, but we really don't have a read on the BB other than he called from the BB. I think a value bet is probably a good move here. If someone calls, then you are probably way ahead, and if they whiffed then you just drag a smaller pot.

I would rather drag the pot right here as opposed to giving a free card and getting sucked out on. I always say it's better to win a little than lose a lot.

Be happy with any win. Suppose you bet less, and get called, then suppose a j, ace or ten show.

Phatjose has it right, better to win a little than lose a lot.

I must admit I can't read this :( What were you dealt? Where is the flop? I'm so confused :(

My cards=KK, community cards=Q6K. lol. I know this looks waaay different than my hand posts usually look. I finally figured out how to copy and paste the HH from out of the bodog client and this is what it looks like after a little bit of editing. (Props to Egon Towst for telling me how to copy and paste the HH!)

I wouldn't have checked the flop. The players that called your raise preflop probably have high cards which would give them potential straight draws. Take the pot down now and avoid getting outdrawn.
