IMO, this hand is played very well.

If someone comes over the top on the flop, with this being a league game, then I would have to fold (I'd call in a cash tourney).

But honestly, on a dry board like this when i have top 2 pair, what card can make me loose the leading on the turn ?
dont u think it was better to give the opp a chance to improve their hand to second best and then bet on the turn ?

This is NOT a dry board. There are multiple cards that could give a player a straight.. so I have to bet.

The ONLY way that I can slowplay is if there is not a single card in the deck that can beat me.. here, if the turn or river is a J or T, I can easily lose.

If Gus Hansen would disagree with that, it may be why he is down $19 million on Full Tilt.

What works in a high stakes cash tourney is not the same as a league game. They have totally different strategies. Comparing them is like comparing apples to oranges. Playing anything other style is a losing proposition in the league games....

ill give u an example from the aussie millions tourney 2007 and u will review what u think about his play -

blinds - 25/300/150 53.2 fousen in chips . the player from first position limps. Gus limps 2 before the button with q of spades and king of diamonds, the big blind checks.
the flop comes k clubs 6 hearts and 2 of spades. both villians checks and Gus checks also.
the turn is the 2 of hearts. the big blind bets 500 and the villian in 1st position raise to 2000.
he calls and the big blind folds.
the river is the 3 of spades and the villian from 1st poistion raise again 3000. he calls .
the villian reveals A - 5 of hearts and Gus takes the pot.

different tourney types have different strategies. this will not apply to a league nor a satellite.

Top 100 in the end of the month leaderboard. Individual tourney positions don't mean much. The monthly leaderboard is what matters.

honestly, it's not very good... you can easily still get negative league points from that finish.

Right now, you're in 2,072, anything above 2,000 is BAD, you wouldn't be in the money

Since you haven't accumulated 20Vpp's, at 2,000 you get $0.50 and so does everyone above 500th place

I would consider better than 500 good or so-so and if you were to finish in the top 800, you would be promoted to the Premier League, where you would be seen as a better player

PS. You're not Gus Hansen if you're playing Freerolls, and like John said, you can't compare how Gus plays with a League game, just like you can't compare cash games and tournaments, nor can you compare tournaments with S&G's.
