      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?

      It depends of preflop action,but most of the time you are huge favorite in this hand.

      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.

      Read it :)

      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
