      Hello,

      Hand 1
      Nice hand, well played. :P

      Hand 2
      Yes, you could just Call the turn and hope him to bet the river again.

      Best regards,

      Hi kourou,

      Calling turn seems fine imo. But I'd fold 22 pf even with a double stack. Take a look at the BSS articles where they talk about the call20 rule. It says you should only call a raise with a low PP when your stack (and villain's) is at least 20 times the amount of the raise.

      In your case you have a little more than 10X his raise, so it's not profitable in the long run.

      Best regards.

      Hi Kourou,

      First hand - well standard shove right with Aces :)


      2nd hand I completely disagree with your plays. First of all, even though you got a bigger stack (55bb~). Even some 100bb-bigstackers play marginally by calling this 4bb openraise to setmine so just fold as a ssplayer :)
