      Hi Davidangel,

      Please leave out the results , I may have said this a couple of times before but I will certainly unfluence people's verdicts so you might get the wrong advice!

      Hand 1: Easy push

      Hand 2: You could bet 1/2 pot to let him call you as only 3 cards ( Ace ) will hurt your hand. Maybe even 1/3!

      Well played :)

      Hand 2, if the donkey wants to suck out on me, I am gonna make him pay to try it. But I will certainly keep that in mind as I get more settled into the new limit. Thanks for the advice

      Hi,

      I like both hands. In the first one according to the basic strategy you could've raised it 3x, but it seems very weak to me as you have to shove any flop regardless of what cards you're going to see.

      Secon one's different. With such enlaged stack you cannot gamble with all your money preflop (I mean, you may and you should if you get enough action, but you cannot shove $10 after simple $1 raise). I like the size of your 3bet, it makes it easier to put all your money into the pot on the flop.

      Well played.
