                Hi vk.petrof! This promotion is for full ring game, so in the future, please play the 9 player tables, not the 6 player ones. With QJ in the BB, I get two limpers in front of me. I'm going to make a standard raise, which is to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I will raise to 50. I don't want to raise to less than this or the opps can be getting the correct odds to try to outdraw me. I flop top 2 pair on a very wet board. Here, I need to make a bet both for value, but one that gives the opp a -EV play to call to draw to a straight or flush. Bets post flop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With one opp, I need to bet 1/2 pot (44 chips). If I bet less than this, the opp could be getting the right odds to outdraw me and if so, it'll be my own fault if I lose the hand. The same thing on the turn. I need to bet 1/2 pot (78), both for value and to price out the opp's possible draws. The river A can be a good or bad thing. It can get me value from Ax hands, but if the opp had AJ or AQ, they now beat me. Once again, I'm going to make my standard 1/2 pot bet. I want to keep all of my bets standard, as this helps to conceal my hand. Players that bet more or less based on their hand are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent, so this is something that I do not want to do. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                      Then study the Cash Game course and once your happy have a go at attempting the quiz. Don't rush through the course, there's a lot of content there and the quiz is tricky so spend some time on this.
