    Hi dduvshani!

        The league games have a strategy unto themselves. In them I have one and only one goal and that is to last as long as possible to accumulate league points for the end of the month leaderboard. To do so, I need to play extremely conservative and to not overbet anything. With KK, I need to make a standard opening raise, which at this blind level is to 3BB+1BB for each limper (480 chips). When I flop an overpair to the board, I need to make a standard value bet. Bets postflop need to be sized based on the size of the pot, number of opps and board texture. With one opp, a standard bet is 1/2 pot, so I will bet 748 chips. The turn fills the flush draw. Here, I have two options. I can either make another standard 1/2 pot lead value bet (or if I think the opp has the flush), I need to check and fold. If I do decide to bet (not my preferred option), I need to fold to any raise. The key here is to fold the turn to any bet by the opp. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24) P.S. If this was a standard cash tournament. I'd make the same bet preflop, but since the flop bet is very close to pot-committing me, I'd shove the flop... something that I cannot do in a league game.

            not really.. can't check/raise the turn (either check and fold or initially shove) and need to make standard bets.
