I'm new to semi-new to poker. Was dealt a hand with a 10 in it, then flop came 10,10,10, the person I was playing against had seven times my $, so I checked, knowing he would just push all in, and he did, not sure what this play is called but I love it, it makes me smile. :)

It is called trapping. And congratulations great move. No one would expect you to have a four of a kind, you trapped to perfection.

Yeah, that works fine at the microstakes, as very few players there will fold a full house, and some of them will just ship their small pair full houses on the flop as they dont want to make a decision on a later street.

As you move up you will start to encounter players who will be considering other peoples hands. The default play for anybody with flopped quads at the micros is to check, which is fine. However, sometimes the most deceptive play will be to lead with it, as most players would never expect you to bet it out.

This is where the fun poker starts as we move into multiple level thinking.
