      In hand 2 I didn't think my ratio was good enough to push, I put him on Ax and decided to go for it anyway.
      In hand 3 I was hoping to either isolate and win unimproved, or take the dead money then and there.
      In hand 5 I had no PF initiative and was ready to fold the flop

      Any evaluations are appreciated

      1) NH

      2) BvB and therefore fine. You can also try a limp-reraise versus an aggressive BB (stong read necessary) but can be tricky PF in the event that the BB flats. Open-shoving is +EV.

      3)Marginal at best.Folding PF can't be too bad. You have very little FE with a couple of loosish villains in the hand.

      4)PF is fine. Not too sure post-flop on what's best besides boating-up.


      5)Ugly. Just fold PF.

      My 2c.

      unless you are slansky pushing, or have very nice(5:1 or better) odds to call, you should never VP$IP a pocket pair <7.

      wait till you are gold member and read up on slansky shoves.
