    "That" as a conjunction + a comma

    Hi, is there any time that I need to put a comma after "that"? For example in the following sentences:- "I realised very soon that it's a great sport." "The thing I like most about it is that everybody helps you." "You must have patience and soon you see that you are really into the game." I don't think I need a comma in these sentences but if I'm right, I don't know why. Am I correct? Thanks for your help.

    Commas would be wrong there. One does not separate "that" from the clause it introduces.
