      As I've read that the key for success on microlimits is value betting... Did I value-bet right on this hand?

      Hello Elertar,

      You could even bet the flop & turn bigger. :) For extracting more value. They are loose enough on those limits to pay you with any draw and of course with Qx. Nice hand overall.

      Against some opponents I'd even consider shipping the river since I doubt that they are folding there any hands expect missed draws if they are loose enough.

      Best regards.
