      Hey NBASuns,

      First of all there is no need to post the results as they are not needed.

      Both hands were played correctly, although your cbets were very close to being more >50% of your remaining stack so it would have been easier to just push on the flop.

      Well played.

      Regards,
      -Steve

      have to agree with the dawg. :) bet 2/3 of pot on flop but if that is half or close to half of stack, can push all in. nice hands.

      also next time, better to make title more descriptive. such as NL10 TT/99 overcards on flop. rather than just interesting hands.

      looks like ur off to a good start in SSS. good luck!

      Hello!

      First hand:

      I would actually like a 0.60$ bet more, as it is closer to 2/3 of the pot. The rest of the hand is well played.

      Second hand:

      Again, I would like the 0.60$ bet more. But you played it well :) .

      Regards,

      Primzi

      Hey NBASuns,

      First hand is well played although I bet like $0.6 to save a bb next time whenever you have a holding which isnt considered a made hand on that flop

      Second hand is the same situation -> I should bet $0.6

      Well done,
      Gerv
