      Hand No 2. Not enough stats for me to make a solid decisions so talked myself out of the fold on this occasion. Decided I still had outs if I was up against A10 but ultimately could have been ahead of loads of other hands.

      why aren't you playing with a 100bb stack?
      also hand 1 = hand 3, guess hand 3 is meant to be another one :P

      anyway on to the hands

      hand 1: utg seems like a super huge fish so definitely try to raise bigger, i'd make it at least $0.25.
      as played, it kinda sucks to get into such a flop against 3 other players but not much to do other than bet... you can bet bigger on the flop though and then you'll have a pot bet size left -> shove the turn.

      hand 2: definitely bet bigger on the flop, you can get paid by Qx and straight draws.
      as played, just get it in on the turn (specially as you don't have a full stack), he should have KQ often enough, maybe KJ QJ sometimes.
      i think T9 is more likely than AT, in any case if he has one of those then congrats to him... but you kinda brought it upon yourself with the low flop bet.

      Cheers for the feedback Tomaloc and yes I read hand 1 as the guy being a fish so just bet all streets for value.

      As for the 100bb, that's just habit from playing 0.02/0.04 limits on other sites. Will sort that for next time. As for hand 2 I deliberately bet small 'initially' putting my opponent on a smaller pocket pairs or other Ax hands and didn't want to squeeze him out the pot too early.

      hand 3: nothing else to do considering it's a 3bet pot and you have a 80bb stack.

      betting small on both hands is wrong, these are not super safe boards and you have strong hands with which you want to get stacks in by the river on most runouts. just bet high for value (2/3+)

      it seems to me that you like to "slowplay" your strong hands with small bets.
      just bet bigger with them, it's not like you are going for super thin value and if villains don't have anything they won't pay your hand's worth anyway... which is too bad, but that's poker. :f_biggrin:
