I'm sorry but the GPI in my opinion not a very good way to distributing points for the players! I know all the pros follow it and want to be ranked first on it, but in my opinion, it doesn't give credits enough to the bracelet winner, while it gives a lot of credits to the player who cashed a lot... I mean the difference between 1st and 10th are not that high IMO...

For Example: Dan KELLY cashed like 8 times ( biggest finish was 5th and the rest are higher than 10th (i guess))
GPI_POY=413 BLUFF_POY=344.70 (which is like 17% less)
While the players who won a bracelet like:
Mike Matusow GPI_POY=235 BLUFF_POY=268
David Chiu GPI_POY=152 BLUFF_POY=212

This just my opinion, but the bluff magazine POY is much clearer while the GPI is a mystery for us :P

Anyway, nothing much we can do about it, just saying!

Again, I don't think calling here is terribe or anything, but it is something that needs to be considered seeing that his sizing is so much.

But flatting the flop is just horrible w how much is in the pot, the action, and the board texture

It's a cash game with 4 players in there, to much money to hit your set - which you did. Check-raise the flop, it shows really good strength especially with that board texture. Sure, you want to extract value - but I think 135 + 270 in a 1-2 hand against 4 players for a pair of 6's in this pot is pretty decent value. Not to mention with that board texture, it becomes less about value at this point but more against protecting a very vulnerable hand. He may or may not have called - you'll never know - but the best thing in poker is to put your opponents to the test every step of the way. Make them sweat the rough and tough decisions. Once you make it anywhere between 360-500 you're showing a lot of strength and you're putting them to the test and all you have to do is sit back and know that unless they snap call, you're way ahead. It's always best if you're the one putting everybody to the test and not the one having to make the tough decisions. Aggressive is the way to go - especially with this board texture.

Now, on a 6 K 9 board texture, I'm all for just flatting and then leading out on the turn, especially if a K or a 9 hits. Your hand is definitely well hidden and you're going to get paid off unless they boat up on the river (but hey, all you can do is play your best and let the cards do the rest).

Also I'm saying passive players probably lay the cards down to a raise, I should explain better I'm sorry.
