      First hand I would have folded preflop.

      If I wanted to see a flop I would do it as cheaply as possible by just checking.

      If I got to the flop I would bet/fold it.



      Second hand seems like a well played to me.

      The normal line I take is raise preflop (you did) and then cbet the flop if villan leaves initiative to me and since your cbet (2/3 of pot) would be more than half your stack (or close) the shove is fine.

      for me, both hands played well.
      first hand, ur correct that accdg to SHC, 77 in late/blinds is raise first in. esp since villain in CO only limps. that is a sign of weakness esp from a person in late position. i would put him on speculative hands like suited ace or connectors or small pocket pairs or if he is really bad player, maybe even KT or something.
      the flop is favorable for you because then you would be ahead most of the hands i mentioned above. only very small chance that villain holding 8.
      2/3 flop bet was ok.

      i would be more concerned on the flop of the second hand because there are 2 overcards which are within the opponents range. however, in heads up situation where villain checks to us and we are preflop aggressor, conti-bet is mandatory so i think play is also ok.

      Hey Crapy,

      All here was standar play, save for your call on the flop in the first hand. The standard move is bet/fold on flop whan you don't have top pair/overpair+. But I guess it's fine to call there also since the board was paired and no other overcards.

      Hello!

      First hand:

      77 raise was ok, according to the SHC. The flop raise was also nice, what I don't like is the called all-in. Don't call that unless you're sure you're ahead of your opponent ;) .

      Second hand:

      I do not think that the shove was really neccessary, especially with 2 overcards on the flop. Since you're IP, 1/2 pot or 2/3 pot would be more suitable :) .

      Regards,

      Primzi

      EDIT: oh, and please post the hands separately next time :) . Thank you!

      Im sorry what? I advise you to reread the articles CDVik ;)

      Concerning the hands crapy

      You got an OESD on the Flop but the more important thing is that I dont see someone limp/calling with an eight included so you are most of the times ahead because its 1) a paired board and 2) the % probability he could have an eight in his based on his limp/call line preflop


      Second hand is a standard shove. Deviating from it is not recommended because he easily could hold TT or lower and c/f on your shove because HE thinks you have either an Ace or Jack :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
