      I thought a squeeze means he has quite a wide range, so I raised for value. After he shoved I had good odds, so I called.


      What did I do wrong in both of these hands?

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      JJ hand is pretty standard, we ain't really folding vs his stack. Although get it in directly there so put him all-in.

      About QQ I'd say you are overplaying the hand cause you will rarely see a lot worse hands going broke there unless he is some kind of maniac. So might even just Call and play postflop as long he gives that good odds for us.

      Also would be nice if you kept 1 hand per thread so we could concentrate on one hand and keep the discussion. Those both hands are still kinda different, similar hands are fine though.

      Best Regards.
