      I am trying to figure out the leaks in my game so I decided to get back to basics and the SHC. I figure being a noobie, my top three priority are basic SHC, position and outs and odds.

      one of the more senior bronze, mentioned that maybe I was playing too tight.

      But if the hero has a pair of tens in an early position and there is one raise and no calls. the SHC says you should fold. Is that too tight?

      I also about Outs and Odds..

      the pot is 0.80 with a 0.20 to call. pot odds are 4:1

      Hero has a pair of Aces :heart: :club: .. and the flop is a rainbow with 1 high cards. 4 :spade: 7 :heart: 10 :diamond: .

      If you hold Aces, what are you assuming your opponent is holding?

      Hey Odieone,

      For hands I suggest you cut and paste the Hand history into a Hand converter and post it with all details.

      With just snippets of a Hand it is hard to get a picture of the action and to give a good analysis. How big is your stack, how big is opponents stack, etc?

      With 2 Aces im not thinking whether I'm getting the right odds or outs since I see myself ahead and will re-raise a 20 cent bet here to 1$.

      Odds/outs are more applicable to drawing situations.

      Yeah I think I will start doing that. I posted it last night before i went to sleep and in the morning I was thinking about it and realized there is just so much more to think about aside from what cards you are holding.

      I will drop down to a lower limit, get a few more games and cut & paste the ones that give me trouble. Thanks for the advice
