      Should I raise here on river? How much?
      I figured that if I called I'd get a call behind me and would protect against a possible FH.

      I'd raise river, FH is just a very small part of his range with that river bet. You could get a call by CO, but great part of his range is a draw, so he wont call unless he hits, and he'd atleast call if you raised too.

      Hi I have a few questions,

      I can buy-in for $5 on this table and I saw others calling it NL5 so I figured its NL5 =P

      SHC says call with QJs from MP if someone calls.

      On turn, pot is 0.11, why should I raise to 1.1?

      How much should I raise on river?

      thnx

      hi
      sory i mystyped . i meant raise river to 1.1
      imo raising there qjs is superior then limping but sticking to the chart is good until you have an idea of what you are doing so if the chart says limp do as the chart says
