Was I too aggressive?

      Hi - I'm a bit of a noob to this, but would appreciate some advice on a couple of hands that I played today. I was beaten by 3 of a kind in both. On the first I think I should have seen it coming, so perhaps I was too aggressive? On the second was I right to call down to the end?

      Thanks!
