      1) right
      2)Trash hand on flop with 2 players,check/fold,if you woould have 1 left then cont bet would be good

      Hi NBASuns,

      I like your line in the forst hand.

      On the second one though you didn't raise the correct amount preflop (it's 4bb+1/limper, so 5bb = $1.25 here). On the flop the continuation bet is a must - you have not only two overcards, but also the gutshot straight draw which are enough to even push the flop.

      I hope you were just waiting to blind out in the second one? You had nearly 40bb's which is way too much at sss.

      I see, so two over cards + gut shot is enough to bet.. And yea I was waiting for the BB as I had just doubled up the last hand through those Aces I posted ;]
