Betting on the Flop

When you're playing the small pairs the way I suggest (reraising with them before the flop), a l ot of times you'l e nd up playing three-bet pots against only one or two opponents. When this happens, be sure you bet the flop aggressively, s o as to gain information about what your opponents may have. Suppose for example that you've made it three bets before the flop with 3-3, and then the flop comes down A-K-9. If your lone remaining opponent checks, then go ahead and bet once. You never know—he may just fold for the one bet. Perhaps he too has a small pair, or he holds 10-8 suited or something of that sort.
