Hi stedds,

The villian shoved with Jacks and you were an 80% favourite preflop.

He hit one of his two outs on the river, clearly a bad beat man.

Hi stedds!

When a player raises, my re-raise will be to a number between 3X the previous bet and a pot-sized raise. In a league game, it will ALWAYS be on the low end, but in a cash tourney, it could be toward the top end. Any raise lower than this, can possibly give the opp the correct price to draw, which is something that I do not want to do. Remember, the opp should be looking at an entire opponents range, not just one hand.
