      Both are folds according to the basic strategy but yet, here they are:

      1) A standard raise from the button but the reraise looked weak. Should I've folded?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:
      $2.19
      MP1:
      $12.95
      MP2:
      $1.95
      MP3:
      $10.00
      CO:
      $2.42
      BU(Hero):
      $1.85
      SB:
      $2.14
      BB:
      $5.05
      UTG1:
      $10.42


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 9.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB folds, BB raises to $0.70, Hero raises to $1.85, BB calls $1.15.

      Flop: ($3.75) 6, 8, J (0 players)
      BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($3.75) J (0 players)
      BB gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($3.75) K (0 players)
      BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.6.

      2) Was playing the same villain at a couple of tables and he looked reasonably solid and rather tight than loose. Since I'm SSS, he must have understood I don't play many hands but I did have the opportunity to steal a couple of times before. Obviously not from MP2, though, so easy fold?

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, Q.
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.90, 4 folds, CO gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.55.

      Thanks!

      Hi Bluep,

      People on 10NL aren't really looking to other players in general hence you can't be sure that he perceives you tight.

      I will jam the first hand because it is a BTN vs Blinds situation but I am really mucking A:sQ in the 2nd hand

      You are openraising AQs for value there and not to steal the blinds , remember that ;)
