      Just sat down at a table and got delt these two hands within about 2 orbits. No reads on the players due to the small sample size of around 15 hands.

      -2 stacks :f_cry: :f_cry: :f_cry: big fish on the new limits

      i can see you get away from the first hand but not from the second.
      the reason is that you make it obvious from your preflop raise that you hold an overpair + cbet , that's why he shoves. you should stop and think there , you show so much strength and he probably insta shoved that flop. he wants to get called. fold without read . You can beat slowplayed KK (highly unlikely) and a bluff


      second hand i would get it all in on the flop. the way you played it *maybe* you can get away on the turn if you were deep stacked. with only $10.20 left and with that pot size it's a must call and you are probably not drawing dead

      Against unknown I´d also get all-in on the first hand, since likely you´re only beat by TT/55 which is not so likely
      He can shove there with AQ, KK, KJ and some bluffs
      Don´t like limp at second hand. I´d like to raise it pf
      after hitting your set you can´t fold, since player would play top set and likely AA with flushdraw the same way
      I´d also shove it on the flop, since it sucks to c/f turn when another club comes
