Heres a hand I just played in the UKIPT Division 2 freeroll. Besides the cautious limp pre-flop, I think I got as much as I could out of this hand.

I'd have raised preflop, but when you flop quads... I'm check/calling everything to the river, then making a value raise of whatever I think the opp will call.
Very nice hand

You're wayyyyy too shallow to be limping pre unless you know there is an aggro player behind who will do the raising for you. Flop is super dry, so again, unless you're against a strong aggro player who will jam over a bet checking is definitely best. Turn 5 is a great card. And just calling his lead is beautiful. No draws exist, so you don't have to worry about one coming in on the river and scaring him. Plus the 5 could totally give him a boat (unlikely but still). Chances are he's actually pretty weak here though, since you have all the jacks, which really only leaves him pocket pairs, and 5x. Raising will probably kill all his bluffs, which is most likely hand here. His river bet is awesome. It generally means he LOVES his hand and any raise you make will get called.

By the way he played this pretty terribly.
