      BB is very loose, passive player
      UTG1 is somewhat loose (?)

      Questions:
      1. Did I made the correct play on the flop, knowing that I'm facing 2 loose players?
      2. Was my raise size correct?

      Thanks! :D

      It depends, how aggressive are they postflop? If they are passive, I'd say go ahead and raise. If they are aggressive you could call, and let them bluff, give them some rope to hang themselves ;-).

      Also, in the CO preflop, I'd raise with QJs, when u flop big like here, it's easier to get stacks in...

      PS: I usually play SH, so I could be wrong, just trying to help...

      oh, I see... remembering back, they are quite passive post-flop...

      I always play FR BSS, btw... so, plays might vary with SH play...

      anyway, thank you for your insight! :D

      Hello 36bullets,

      1. Did I made the correct play on the flop, knowing that I'm facing 2 loose players?

      Yeah, I'd also rather just raise there, to protect our hand and also start building up the pot. Well done!

      2. Was my raise size correct?

      I'd raise a bit bigger, ~$0,20. Would be a lot easier to get our money in on further streets.

      Best regards.

      Hi veriz,

      Thank you again for your feedback!

      I'll remember this the next time I play.

      Thanks!
