      Hi,

      This is my first post so sorry if its not in the right spot or isnt in the correct format. I just wanted to say that this site is great and has so much usefull information, hopefully I will be able to improve my game so I'm not such a donk. Anyway, here are a couple of hands I played that I'm not totally sure if I played right. Also, how do I hide the results?

      Cheers,
      Chris

      Welcome GunFlavoured :) ,

      First of all I would like to suggest that you remove the result in your future hand posts, this can influence our fair judging because we adjust the verdict according to the result. But we shouldn't be Result-Orientated with SSS.

      #hand 1

      Because you are OOP post-flop whenever he calls, I always add a virtual BB when calculating my raise-size. This would be like $2.5. Since that is 50% of your stack, you can go all-in immediately.

      As played it is fine but here you have to shove on any flop regardless what cards are coming so in fact you are giving your opponents 3 free cards (the flop) to see if they hit something.


      #hand 2

      Preflop: Good
      Flop: Good
      Turn: I would go All-in since you invest 73% of your stack more or less

      Unlucky though but in the end you will be profitable with that kind of Villain's play :)


      If there is anything unclear, feel free to hit the reply button :)

      Thanks for the comments. I have seen some posts with the results hidden so you can view them by highlighting them, how can I do that or should I just delete them in the future.
