      I've been racking my hands with both of these and am thinking maybe I should have betted the turn in both cases. Should I have folded these two hands pocket pairs?

      Thanks

      First hand I bet a second barrel. It's not a fact he has a flush draw plus K is scary plus we have like 1023123312432 outs. Second hand : Shove turn. K is a blank, we only have to be worried about 9K or KK wich got us beat at flop.

      Hey Odin444,

      I would recommend u posting just 1 hand per thread :)

      On this turn with QcQs, I would bet because you have a SD+FD so you have decent equity there and you can definitly fold out better hands :)

      In the 2nd hand you should bet the Turn again or call this river IF you raise this flop. Sometimes I do raise the Flop, sometimes I do not depending on stats

      Hope it helps

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Thanks for the responses guys and apologies for the multi hand posting (I played them in close succession and figured I would have them both looked at in one go as they were quite similar)

      Figured I should have kept with the aggression, just thought I was being slow played for some reason

      Thanks for that
