      I seem to always have a problem on the Big blind when I get a free-play and hit on the flop...

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) - Party-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (BB) ($2.05)
      MP1 ($2.01)
      UTG+1 ($6.12)
      UTG ($1.47)
      MP3 ($1.96)
      MP2 ($6.46)
      SB ($6.10)
      Button ($5.68)
      CO ($1.40)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, J
      6 folds, Button calls $0.10, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.30) J, 4, 5 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.21, 1 fold, SB calls $0.21

      Turn: ($0.72) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero raises to $1.74 (All-In), SB calls $1.74

      River: ($4.20) 6 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $4.20

      Results below:
      SB had 5, 5 (three of a kind, fives).
      Hero had 5, J (two pair, Jacks and fives).
      Outcome: SB won $3.99

      Oh...and sorry for giving the results but I wanted to show what he had and how he played it. :f_frown:

      I think you played it right but I know how you feel I seem to have similar problems whenever I hit a hand (most notably 2 pair) on a free play.

      Shoving turn is a bit overbetting Energie!

      I would bet $0.6 and shove River

      Ideal line would be Bet Pot Flop -> Bet Pot Turn (which is mostly a shove because a Potsized bet is 50%> of your stack)

      Best regards,
