      IMO I like the first hand as played.

      With the second I think sometimes your running into KK AA, i'd take the line of 3bet fold to shove preflop. Your raising from UTG so if villian is a thinking player he must give you a tight range.

      We'll see what the judges make of it.

      1st hand is standard
      2nd hand, just shove pf
      both are middlestacks and would get all-in with worse hands than yours

      thanks judge, but "calling with worse hands", what kind of a range do we expect him to 3bet with considering i 3bet a early position open raiser with no squeeze value? is this worth the risk?

      mostly TT/JJ, also often AK, sometimes AQ and some random hands
      Since there are 7.5$ in the pot and they have left 14$ you gain a lot if you take pot down pre-flop and since you would stack off anyway overpair then I don´t see why you shouldn´t get all-in pf, rather than c/f K or Q high boards where you could easily be ahead
