      I reasoned that: 1) an A will usually raise me on the flop and 2) I've been getting floated a LOT at NL50, so figured firing the second barrel may get a fold...no such luck. Should I have check/folded the turn and river?

      Thanks,

      Hand 1.)
      Good, would have played it the same way.

      Hand 2.)
      Tricky. I do not see him calling with much. Only hands I would put him on he could call are AK, AJ and 55.

      I guess its 50:50 where I would go broke or be able to be done with that hand.

      Amazingly he had KK :( ...can't believe he didn't re-raise anywhere...not that I'd have been able to get away from QQ even if he did.

      I think I may have been on tilt when I pushed the turn...but I'm glad to hear that it wasn't a HUGE mistake :)

      Funny, that's exactly the thing I'm working on myself...
      I tend to push on the turn after the call on the flop, thinking that he might be on some kind of draw and I want him to fold his hand. This is something I definitely shouldn't do according to the SSS. It seldom paid off.
      So, it's check/fold for me...

      Hi MisterB73,

      I think this is the only time I've EVER done that...I was just tired of my c-bets being called EVERY SINGLE TIME! I just picked a bad spot for it I guess :(

      Thanks,
