      Thanks for all the feedback from my previous posts all! :) I'm still getting the hang of the site....

      Here's three of my first 5 hands at a recent table, blew my stack in 10 mins! Was I overplaying those 10's? First one on SB could've been worse, but I wonder if it's better to smooth-call the raise or just fold there to avoid a coin-flip or worse, especially considering my position. I didn't like the straight draw either, too tempting. Villains were all unkowns. Second pair on Button I thought was okay, just unlucky, but I'd like to avoid coin-flips. Again I wonder if I should've folded to the first raise....?

      Thanks again all! :D

      1) good. you could also raise a bit less

      2) is good ^^ but imo you should rebuy a bit earlier in the beginning. just rebuy to 20bb when you are down to 15 or something. normally it´s better to let your stack decrease without rebuying but you have to adjust your play then. just rebuy and stick to the standard strategy.

      3) with your small stack i like it :)

      Thanks frzl!

      Good to hear I played those right... I felt I did, but it's good to get a second opinion so I can definitely call it bad luck! I've been getting a lot of those hands lately, not getting paid for good hands and loosing big to my other good hands. Seems like every time someone calls my raise they get the better flop or river.... argh!
