      I've been analyzing my play, and I don't think I'm defending my blinds very well. For some of these hands, I find I'm folding a lot, and was wondering whether I should actually be more aggressive with them. Here are two examples where I had contemplated betting, but ended up check/folding.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy hand converter:

      Known players:
      BB:
      $9.50
      UTG2:
      $23.00
      MP1:
      $44.95
      MP2:
      $21.10
      MP3:
      $30.45
      CO:
      $70.00
      BU:
      $58.95
      SB:
      $50.25

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, A.
      3 folds, MP3 calls, 3 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: (5.00 SB) 5, T, T (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: (2.50 BB) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 2.50 BB.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, 6.
      MP1 calls, 5 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: (5.00 SB) 5, 8, 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks.

      Turn: (2.50 BB) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $1.00, Hero folds, MP1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: 2.50 BB.


      On a side note, I've just started using pokertracker, and realized that unlike elephant, the players' stats don't show up in the hand history. Is there any way to include the player stats in the hand histories (without looking up each player)?

      stats? I'm probably donking the first hand since the flop is sooo dry and folding to resistance, maybe betting the turn on the second hand , again with stats is better.

      I dont believe so, I had just unlocked the license for elephant and have been using that now to analyze, but using the pokertracker for HUD. Its a pain
