      So this was my first stab at NL100 being properly bankrolled, Both hands had no stats on the players at the time. Sorry i couldnt find a hand converter which worked with Betfair hand histories, ive tried to tidy them up.

      Hand 1

      Total number of active players : 6
      Seat 1: mugsey ( $179.10 )
      Seat 3: lifei ( $147.42 )

      lifei folds

      Stats on player at end of session
      Hands 66
      vpip 66.7
      PFR 21.21
      wts 28.26
      total AF 0.87
      River AF 6.5

      So PF is pretty standard maybe i can make it $1 more as im OOP. I think my flop bet should be a little bit closer to pot size.

      Turn was a very scary card, so i was hoping to bet then fold to a raise, or is check/call better here or even check fold.

      Once the river comes i decided to just check and hopefully get a free showdown. Should i call here I wasnt sure if it was the larger than usual bet sizes that put me off but felt i wasn't beating much.

      Hand 2

      Seat 3: moisty70 ( $88.30 )
      Seat 6: lifei ( $104.80 )

      Hands 77

      PFR 7.79
      total AF 1.31
      flop AF 7

      Is my continuation bet too small? maybe he thought it was weakness.
      At the time i felt it would be a bit weak to just fold the flop, so i decided to call and re-evaluate on the turn. The turn i felt was a good card but facing his large bet, i think again being uncomfortable with the size of the bet as well as a lack of reads made me take the cautious route and i decided to fold. I think if i had 1010 or even 99 i would be willing to shove the turn given that card. Would that be ok?

      Overall i think my session went ok i finished up but my continuation bets were getting played back at alot more and alot of the time by junk from certain players.

      Oh another hand that i was not sure whether or not to call

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

      CO ($133.28)
      Hero ($68.56)
      SB ($154.90)
      BB ($41.15)
      UTG ($57.24)
      MP ($297.96)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with 8, 8.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $2, SB calls $1.75, BB calls $1.50.

      Flop: ($6) 6, 7, 5 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB calls $40.65 (All-In), Hero folds, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $46.65

      So obviously a huge overbet can i call?

      Hi csnmf!

      Hand 1) nice hand! bet/fold turn is fine here!

      Hand 2) I would bet/fold the turn here. If he raises you again he obviously has a good hand, but with another bet on the turn you might push out draws

      Hand 3) I would fold here, too. You have some outs, but not sufficient. even if you are up against a flushdraw+overcards it's only 50-50.

      Good luck at the tables!
