Board = Full house
Ok, here is the hand. Tell me how you would have played it. I see this kinda situation every once and awhile, and need to derive some kind of strategy for it.
1/2 dollar NL. Play is pretty conservative, nothing too crazy, pretty tight players. 5 players at the table.
I am on the button, and dealt ATs.
2 guys in front of me fold, I raise it a few dollars.
Small blind calls, so does the big blind. Pot = about 12 - 15 dollars (cant remember how much I raised).
Flop = 2 4 2
SB checks, BB checks, I check.
Turn = 2
SB checks, BB checks, I check.
River = 4
SB checks, BB checks,
Whats your move? A) check and hope you win with high card? B) Bet and push them out of the hand?
EDIT: High card isnt right. Not sure why I put that in there. so, A) should read "Check and split it 3 ways."

Let me further explain what I am thinking at this point.
Ok, 3 people in the hand. Everyone checking like crazy. Full house on the board, more then likely the full house on the board is the the best hand, and everyone is a winner, and it will be split 3 ways.
If I can bet big, I may be able to push one person out, and it gets split 2 ways. Or, I get lucky, push both out with my big bet, and I take everything.
OK, Here is the answer: I will totally check, but not because i'm hoping to have the big card. The big card doesn't metter in this hand. So you made a raise before flop. 2 players called you. I think they will probably have big hands or pocket pairs. Imagine if one of them had 55 he would of won that hand make a 22255 fullhouse. In other order they both checked after river until you do it. So you might of tryed a bet there, but i think the checking move was good.
Well, here is what I did.
I bet large. The first guy bailed. So I was happy, gonna split it 2 ways instead of 3. Right? Nope. The other guy turned over another 2.
ouch. Bad idea. Should have just checked and split it 3 ways. I learned a valuable lesson.
I think you made a few mistakes playing that hand.
Not that I am a great player when it comes to that sort of situations but I would have done it like this:
You have AT and raised preflop ,2 people call.
If u hit nothing on the flop but raised preflop and the 2 callers check before u
I think that you made your first mistake checking there.
If u made a defensive but good bet righ there you know where you would be
If no one calls your bet you take the pot .
If there is a player who calls then you know that he has hit something and if he doesnt reraise he would probably have a bottom pair or a low pocket.
If both players call your defensef modest"bluff"then you know they both hit something or on a draw.
If someone reraises then you know this hand is not going to deliver any money.
Thats wy if I am on the button and the other players check to me On the flop I try to figure out what they have right then with a good bet instead of waiting till the river and bet a really big bet and loose it all.
If I didnt hit anything on the flop and have no draw I try to take the pot then with a defensive bet or if im reraised Ill have to fold.
Think it will save you some money on long terms.
