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.

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.
