      When you have upswing everything seems so nice, but I know that I could improve my game. So there are some hands:
      1)
      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)
      CO:
      $4,96
      BU:
      $4,85
      SB:
      $39,85
      UTG+2:
      $36,30
      MP1:
      $13,77
      MP2:
      $19,60
      Hero:
      $4,25
      MP3:
      $30,90

      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.7 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:club: , A:diamond:
      6 folds, SB raises to $0,50, Hero raises to $4,25 (All-In), SB calls $3,75.

      Flop: ($8,50) 4:club: , 8:heart: , 9:club:
      Turn: ($8,50) K:heart:
      River: ($8,50) 8:club:


      Final Pot: $8,50

      Why do I go all-in with AJ:D I thought that it was normal raise, then it would be right to go all-in. But here. I think that 1,5$ re-raise would take care the job and SB fold, if he has garbage hand, or maybe not:)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with Q:heart: , Q:club:
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1,00, 6 folds, SB raises to $4,75, 2 folds.

      Final Pot: $6,00

      I think that SB mostly has AA, KK or AK and I would save 4$ on the next time when I have kings or aces. Don´t like to use too much coinflips

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:diamond: , J:spade:
      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,25, 6 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0,60) 5:heart: , 9:heart: , 2:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,25, UTG+2 calls $0,25.

      Turn: ($1,10) T:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,25, UTG+2 calls $0,25.

      River: ($1,60) J:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG+2 bets $1,25, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $2,85

      Flop, standard bet, turn wanted to see cheaply river card and river bet shows that he is mostly ahead or this was great bluff on the busted flush draw. Maybe bet 0.50$ on the river and fold re-raise?

      I had 2,90 $ left so conti bet should be all-in. Is it makes any sense or just check behind on the turn? Against the raise I have to fold

      1) Hand 1 is not well played. A normal reraise would be best here. If you shove he usually calls with better hands, or at least a PP.

      2) His pushing range here is TT-AA, AK, if he is a good SS player. Against this range you have an Equity of 52%. Having already money invested I wouldnt fold here. Most of the time your opponent wont be a good SS Player and so you are most often a good favourite against his range with QQ.

      3)
      If you bet the Flop bet 2/3 Pot. ~ 40 cents. If you get called check fold on Turn. On this particular Flop I wouldnt bet. UTG limbs are often small or medium PPs or Suited connectors, and they wont fold to a bet here.

      4)
      I dont think KQ is a standard raise against 2 limpers from CO. As played you have to bet the Flop AI. This is the best possible board for a continuation bet.

      Thanks for comments.

      2) SB isn´t SSS player. His stack is 20 $, so I thought he knows that I raise only very good hands UTG and he would re-raise only premium hands. JJ and TT should be calling hands, I need at least 500 PP to get Pokertracker then I can say if he is playing tight or loose. If there would be one more caller I would probably go all-in, but in this case I´m not still sure if my queens are good.
      3)Now I know, one thing: in HU I have to always bet and when I get raised then I have to fold. I´ve only played an hour but seems that 0,25 bet also works, so why not to use that:P . But 0.40 seems also good bet.
      4) What about against one limper? against two limpers I also limp?, BU would probably limp and SB completes. Even if I hit my king or queen I don´t know if that´s good enough and I could loose my top pair all of my stack if someone has two pair. I really have tight image and I don´t play lot of hands then most of the players would fold.

      Hmm, I thought I need to get 50$ rake, not 500. I have 600 PP and I calculated that I need to get at least 1000
