      Hand 1:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed)

      UTG ($27.40)
      UTG+1 ($24.30)
      MP1 ($19.25)
      Hero ($5.95)
      MP3 ($58.65)
      CO ($51.60)
      Button ($38.50)
      SB ($54.20)
      BB ($16.65)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with T:heart: , T:diamond: .
      [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1[/color], [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], SB calls $0.90, [color:#CC3333]BB raises to $5[/color], Hero folds, SB calls $4.

      Flop: ($11) J:spade: , 6:spade: , 9:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]BB bets $5[/color], SB calls $5.

      Turn: ($21) T:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, BB checks.

      River: ($21) Q:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]SB bets $6.75[/color], BB calls $6.65 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $34.30

      Remaining stack is ~5x original raise of $1...so fold to the re-raise, right? Does the dead money from SB change that at all?


      Hand 2:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (9 handed)

      MP1 ($25.95)
      MP2 ($32.65)
      MP3 ($19.35)
      CO ($4.40)
      Button ($26.15)
      SB ($25.05)
      Hero ($5)
      UTG ($23.90)
      UTG+1 ($26.80)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A:club: , T:club: .
      [color:#666666]7 folds[/color], SB completes, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1.25[/color], SB folds.

      Final Pot: $0.50

      1) I have position on SB
      2) SB only completed
      3) I quite possibly have the best hand even if he calls
      4) I'd be raising here with AJo, which isn't a significantly better hand than ATs
      5) I figured that if I checked and missed the flop that I'd have to fold to even a miniscule bet

      Was the raise OK in this situation, or am I still better off just checking with this hand?

      Thanks,

      1) I think that folding TT is right. You are often behind.
      2) I would raise SB here with Axs and A7+, because I often win the pot right there. Only I would raise 0,75$ (don´t know if I should raise 1$, but 0,75$ seems good enough and I don´t have to push with my whole stack, as I make contibets)

      OK, thanks Kaitz. I just wanted to make sure that the extra dead money in the pot didn't change anything.
