      Final Pot: $0.42

      --- Should I raise preflop to punish the loose MP2 for limping, or is QJo too weak to do this even vs such a loose opponent?

      How about the flop? I think I should have bet here as I was the last to act, but at the time since I was 4-tabling I didn't realise I was the last to act here and thought there might be more after me, so I had to check.

      Turn: I hit my card, so I figured I'd bet, potsize to protect against a possible (but unlikely) flush draw, and to get maximum value.

      River: Didn't help anyone really, unless someone had KJ, or QT, so I bet 3/4 of the pot.

      Hello Royaltramp,

      Preflop: Nah, I don't like raising at all, if there was no limper then you might consider raising but against such a loose opponent I don't really like, limping behind is totally fine.
      Flop: Nah, I don't really like to bet into that many opponents with just Q high, therefore I'd also Check behind.
      Turn: As we hit we can likely now bet since nobody has shown any kind of aggression and often even our one pair could be good here.
      River: I wouldn't bet that big here, it will be hard for them to Call such a huge bet, they will only Call with a better hand, therefore I might bet smallish or either just Check behind since it's a freeplay.

      Best regards.
