Should have been more aggressive after his bet on the flop - that'd make him think. He would have raised pre flop if he had a pair burried.

I hope he didn't place btw - by the looks of this play I have no idea what he was doing on the final 4

Personally, I would have made a pot sized raised (to 400) after the flop.

With a 5Jo, I'm happy flopping a set and collecting, especially with the A on the board, I don't want them to to chase with their Ax or their KQ, KT, TQ.

Still, can't believe he called the turn raise chasing the inside straight.

He was terrible an went out 4th or 3rd.

His bet on the flop confused me, so I ended up placing him on either Ax where x is garbage or just total garbage. I see alot of bad playeys just bet the minimumwhen they really don't have anything. AQ, QK, AA would have warranted more bet before the flop. AJ or Jx would have warranted more bet after the flop, so i thought if no help comes to him on the turn I will "drop the hammer" and the trap will have been played to perfection.

My rule is to bet trips heavily, so it is my fault for trying to get cute.
