      Hello ps.com community,
      After a longer break from 8game I started playing again. I'm in no way good in all games but I think I'm better then the competition. Mostly I lack in Stud Hi and Stud 8. Would be great to get some input on how you think I've played the hands.

      Hand #1

      @hand 9. I often seem to get into spots like this. Your hand is a favourite against two one card draws, but when he bets into two people, you're never good, but you feel you have to call. Sigh!

      yea the question is if I should break my 9.I think it depends if villain is drawing ruff or smooth but I'm not experienced enough. Afterall I think patting is fine but I've to fold river when he leads,without a read that he is capable of snowing here,most villains at this lever are not.

      hand 1: seems fine. so many of the cards we want are dead :( .

      hand 3: fold 5th imo

      call flop hand 4, take it from there. don't just auto raise these hands imo, think about your range and how to get it in against worse hands.
