      Please let me know if I'm posting too many hands, and I'll get a bit more selective.

      Until then, I really appreciate everyone's suggestions. Also, thanks to the hand evaluators for your dedication to helping fish like me become sharks :f_cool: .

      BTW, I follow Harrington's advice to raise vulnerable pocket pairs like 99-JJ a little stiffer, to protect them from overcards. So I'll raise 4-5 bb from early position, but usually 5 bb if I'm new at a table (gotta mix it up to keep them guessing).

      I'm shocked when this player doesn't contibet. I guess he doesn't have a diamond in his hand, likely AK of (not diamonds) or even JJ, so no overpair, no draw = no contibet for this player?

      OR he has AK diamonds, or QQ, and he's slowplaying.

      So I play b/f on the turn?

      I also have this funny idea... that this player thinks a 5bb openraise means air - steal.

      5bb seems quite a lot, I think 4bb is a little better, but if players is loose, then 5bb is also ok
      I´d also b/f turn, since seems like he is giving up and doesn´t want to take stab on the pot
