--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Situation from live tournament (somewhere in the middle, blinds 100/200, avg stack ~7000).
In the late position I get A10s. Someone raises to 500, someone calls, I call (being the last to act), everyone folds. Pot is 1800. Flop comes 5 7 10 rainbow. Both of them check. How much I should raise?

i think you have the best hand but don´t want anymore cards.

2/3 of pot size would be good. You will not lose too much and you are feeling if they have high pocket pairs that they are playing with you with. They probably do not though because they didn't bet like they did in the beginning.

2/3 may not be a good idea vs. 2 opponents. If you bet 2/3 and the first guy calls you with two over cards or some poor play, then the other player is priced in to call with just about any draw, especially with double the implied odds of getting paid off.

Bet more vs. multiple opponents if you think you have the best hand so you can get info on both your opponents, not just the one to act immediately after you.

Half is even worse. If the first guy calls half then the second guy can call with almost any goofy draw.

Try to use your bets to protect your hand and maximize profit from loose callers.

I think anywhere from 2/3 to 3/4 is fine. You don't want to make your hand look too strong in case they have a worse ten and want to play back at you.

I would say it depends on the table (image of the players, etc) but usually if I have top pair plus top kicker, I would bet at least 2/3 of the pot.

Mighta been a good spot to squeeze preflop and make it ~ 2000 to go.

I have a problem with squeeze play. Everytime I try it the other player go all-in and then I'm in troubles. :)

how much are you raising when you squeeze? a good squeeze is 3.5x - 5x the size of the original raise.

Bet big and try to at get at least one of them to fold. You want value for your cards, but if you're playing against two opponents, variance might bite your ass on the turn or on the river.
