Hi lilleleeroy,

I don't think you can get much more value from this hand to be honest. You could reraise the river if you feel two small bets from the opponent signals weakness. Sometimes weak player bet the nuts really small though so they get action. Sometimes your opp might have an AK,AQ,AJ hand and be scared of the straight themselves but aren't ever folding.

I would actually open smaller though. I think 200 is too big. Normally we start in a SnG or Tourney with 3x raises. Some people open for 4x in cash, but you are usually deeper in cash, with shallower stacks you should open smaller.

At the 25/50 blind level I usually start thinking about dropping my open to 2.5x I might keep it at 3x here since we have doubled up already.

CBetting the flop I think is great. Since most people will hit this flop somehow.

Well Played

Andy
