      Hello Tunatic,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Would be great if you kept 1 hand per thread. :) So we could concentrate only on one hand. Thanks!

      Hand #1
      A bit overplaying your hand since it's just a freeplay pot. Ain't worth. Rather would play it more passively. Do you think they are able to pay you with just 1pair on flop or even 3bet this way?

      Hand #2
      You can safely Bet/Fold the turn, you are most likely beat there.

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the nice welcoming post. I will indeed to try posting more hands in order to improve my play.

      And yes, you are correct, I did overplay the first hand, and I should fold on the turn.
