      Hi all, I've been playing Poker for a couple of months now and have unfortunately lost the starting balance from Poker Strategy. So, to try and improve my game I am going to post some of my losing hands here for your help.

      Firstly, a quick question, is there any way of exporting a hand from Poker Edge, or reading it from William Hill's hand history folder?

      Ok, simple question for this one, was I right to raise on the flop?

      don't raise the flop, snap fold and move on at these stakes

      Another bad play here, but how should it have been played?

      At the time I didn't notice the villain was short stracked.

      Hello SnoWonder,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      And please don't post multiple hands into one thread, just open a new one for each hand. :) Thanks!


      Hand #1
      About the hand, Rather don't raise it on flop, usually such pot size donks are very strong and rather just fold it.

      Hand #1
      Add to full stack if you playing BSS. And the villain has almost the same stack as you. :D And I guess I would just Call his min-raise and reevaluate postflop. As you played I don't think that you have much fold equity anyways on flop.

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the feedback Veriz, and for the welcome, glad to be here!

      You will probably notice I have indeed posted a few more hands here :-) I'm looking forward to more feedback.
