      I know that I should be posting the following hands in separate threads, but I don't want to flood the forum with my (stupid) hands (or the ones that I didn't find any big mistakes myself).
      These hands are just randomly picked from the hands log, so if you find a mistake in one, just comment about it. I want to see how many mistakes in total I could've made in those hands!

      Thanks :)

      Hey Ohmu,

      Hand 1 - Just push preflop

      Hand 2 - I think I'd probably check behind there and take a freecard. You have more than 1/2 pot left behind and you are up against two opponents. Don't know for sure though...

      Hand 3 - I'd rebuy before your stack gets that low...other than that, nice hand

      Hand 4 - I'm not sure that weak flush draw + gutshot is strong enough to go all in with. Personally, I'd fold since you don't have the odds to call the SB potsize bet either. At most 12 outs, so you need 3:1 pot odds and you are only getting 2:1.

      Hand 5 - Raise $1.75 preflop since you are in the blinds. That makes it easier to push the flop. Even as played, you should just push the flop though.

      IMHO,
      Kknight

      Please stick to the guidelines how to post sample hands, it makes it easier for me and the other users who want to help you to evaluate your hands.

      Hand 1.)
      Nice hand. :) And we do not push here, because BU can open raise with a lot of hands here, so that we wants him to call. We only fear AA here. And on any flop we can go All-In, against a BU-First-In-Raiser, because even an Ace on the Flop shouldn´t worry us.

      Hand 2.)
      I play check/fold here, the board allows Straight and Flushdraws. And you´re already behind 55, 77 and a Q. So you might have 2 good outs for your Ace.

      Hand 3.)
      Ok.

      Hand 4.)
      Hmm we might have 12 Outs here for our Flush or Straight, but even if we hit our Flush, often we still could hold the 2nd best hand against a better Flush. So here in that spot I would only call, hope to see a turn for that bet (you might only getting 2:1 but still have implied Odds) and decide on the Turn if I push (when you hit) or fold, when you missed your Draw.

      Hand 5.)
      I either push here (since I would be committed anyway) or I play check/fold.

      Berliner, he only had a $4.05 stack. A standard re-raise of $3 is 3/4 of his stack...doesn't make sense to only leave $1.05 behind, does it?

      Ah, ok I was assuming that he had $5. Should also watch out for the stack sizes. In this case you´re right, because it isn´t making any differences. But with a Stack of $5 I would prefer a normal 3x reraise.

      I'll agree with you there :)
