    Hi 24u14me! This is tricky because of the league scoring system, especially at the end of the month when early exits are penalized more and can cost me a sizable amount of real $$. However, if I do get an early exit in one late in the month, it WILL be with a premium made hand (QQ+). Preflop here with QQ, I'm going to make a standard raise to 3BB+1BB for each limper. With 2 limpers, I'll raise to 5BB or 400. I get to see the flop heads-up (surprises me due to the limpers) and I get a great flop for my QQ since there are three undercards. I would normally make my standard c-bet of 1/2 pot here, but since that well pot-commits the opp, I'll bet 880 and put them all-in here. If they're going to draw to an A or K, I want all of their chips in the pot before they see that they hit. If I was up against a stack that could bust me, then I'm going to bet 1/2 pot on the flop, then re-evaluate on the turn, as I don't want to be all-in unless I see that there are no overcards nor pairs on the board. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
