      I'm not a hand judge, but since I was requested to check out these hands, I'll tell you what I think anyway.

      This hand looks well played to me.

      Playing SSS, you're the last one in, and there's a dollar in pot, costing you a dime to call with QJs. 10 to 1 to see the flop, nothing wrong with calling here, I think. It's not on the starting hand chart, but, it's a nice hand to see a flop with, when there is already so much money in the pot from all the callers.

      Flopping the nut straight, can't ask for more than that.

      On the flop there's 1.20 in the pot, so your .80 bet is 2/3 of the pot, seems exactly right to me.

      Turn bet is fine, the only move here I think.

      Nice hand, well played. Too bad you had to split it when he hit a queen on the river.

      nice hand well played from the beginning to the end. you don't have to protect on the flop. only gutshots can really suckout on you, so you play more for value then protection.
