      As mentioned in your other thread, be tighter in freeplay and play only TP with J+ kickers, or better Q+.

      If you however do decide to go for the pot then bet potsize on the flop, 2/3 on the turn and shove river.

      Hello Mbml,

      well sometimes I like to test the waters postflop HU against an openlimper in MP but playing TP and J+ kicker is the best way to play freeplays.

      Betting pot to test the waters is okay, if he calls and a non- falls on the Turn, 2nd barrel hard.
      If being reraised, I go broke because I want to see what he limps with. Mostly against a FD you are 65/35 ahead

      Best regards,
      Gerv
