      Both of these hands are against the same opp. The opp was a calling station and bluffed a lot which is the reason I called his bets in the first hand and I believe I played it okay.

      The second hand I feel like I should have either respected his pot-sized bet on the flop and folded, or re-raised him higher like maybe 3x so I would have a better idea of how strong his hand is. Since he is a very LAG player I was not sure what to do, I did not want to miss out on the chance to win with AA.

      Hello wattzson,

      Welcome to the English NL 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 nice if you kept 1 hand per thread so we could concentrate on one hand. Thanks. :)

      Hand #1
      Seems to be fine while his play doesn't make much sense. He has enough of bluffs in his range there.

      Hand #2
      Don't really like the raise on the flop cause you are just isolating yourself against very strong hands and making worse to fold. I'd rather Call and reevaluate the further actions what others do, most likely not planning to fold vs BB stack.

      Best Regards.
