      Im not pro, but i can point some SSS mistakes imho.

      Hands:

      1) turn should be c/f(gutshot is to be completed 8%);
      2) why river call?
      3) flop should be 2/3 pot bluff(cbet).

      Did You read SSS articles?

      I did read, but as a beginner I make mistakes. I'll reread them, but sometimes is easier if somebody points out the mistake.



      Thank you

      C/F for the third one, out of position and he's called your PFR so any AJQ beats you.

      Well played imo.

      or as Bronscapade said, lol.

      The 99 hand :

      You raised preflop, action flop comes. Its almost never a good idea to leave out a cbet when out of position. He checks in postion twice! This is a huge sign of weakness, then makes a small raise and you fold. Should have been 60c c bet with the bet/fold line. It might be a scary flop but it can be just as scary to your opponent!

      The AQs hand :

      The stack:pot ratio was less then 1.5:1. You should definately push the flop. Your ahead alot of the time here with Ace high queen kicker. If the opponent is loose your probably way ahead ;)

      AJs Hand.

      Playing hands from the SB is always tricky because your always out of position! Shuffing preflop is a option, i like doing that with hands with bad playability. AS played you should have c/f after your c bet got called. You took your stab at the pot and it failed.

      The 99 hand:

      You have to c-bet the flop because if you do you can make a better hand such as Qx or Jx fold which are both way ahead of you and you can easily c/f if you get called or raised because then you're surely way behind.
