      Hey veriz,

      I took a break from cash games and played some tourneys and boosted my BR to over $500, I dropped back down to about $450 and decided thats a perfect roll to start back on NL10 and crush it then move to NL25

      With this line is the pre fop raise good? When the board came a rainbow and 2 low cards I figured I could check then bet heavy when the draw came, I was going to pot it but would have been all of my chips anyway so I shoved.

      Hello brobz,

      One mistake what sometimes people do is that when they do win a tournament they just move up the limits while they don't even beat early limits. :) Hopefully it ain't the case for you. And congrats for the win of course, nice boost. :) Can cash out and buy something nice for yourself which will motivate you to play more poker.

      Preflop: I'd definitely do it bigger here, usually when there are more limpers I do it like 4x 1st raise + 1 per limper if the raise is as well a bit smaller. You are just giving them somewhat odds to Call with anything. So about ~$1,50.
      Postflop: Just bet the flop, ain't worth slowplaying. Any PP may still bet and when a overcard comes then he ain't gonna bet but what we don't want to see. Unless they really have some overcards themselves.

      Best regards.
