      Hand 1:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (9 handed)

      MP3 ($34.15)
      CO ($53.45)
      Hero ($10.50)
      SB ($40.35)
      BB ($48.80)
      UTG ($70.65)
      UTG+1 ($49.55)
      MP1 ($14.25)
      MP2 ($82.80)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with 7:spade: , 7:club: .
      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], MP1 calls $0.50, [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2.5[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], [color:#CC3333]BB raises to $16[/color], MP1 calls $13.75 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Flop: ($31.25) 6:diamond: , T:heart: , 6:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Turn: ($31.25) 7:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      River: ($31.25) 4:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $31.25

      77 facing a raise behind...3.2x original raise left in stack, so easy fold. Does the fact that MP1 called the raise before me make any difference since I have a chance to triple up?


      Hand 2:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed)

      CO ($87.30)
      Button ($55.40)
      SB ($63.30)
      BB ($45.80)
      UTG ($44.65)
      UTG+1 ($58.90)
      MP1 ($35.50)
      Hero ($10)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 7:club: , 7:spade: .
      [color:#666666]6 folds[/color], SB completes, BB checks.

      Flop: ($1) J:spade: , 7:heart: , 6:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]BB bets $1[/color], SB folds.

      Final Pot: $1

      No question here since 77 is an easy fold from MP2. I just wanted to post it because this hand happened less than 5 minutes after hand 1 above.

      Thanks,

      Please fold hand 1.). ;)
      Even with the dead money you only getting around 4:1 and have no Implied Odds. You would need about 8:1 to play break Even. So clear fold.

      Hand 2.)
      Good fold. And to not care what happens afterwards. Your decision is basing on the knowing facts preflop and their your decision was right. Thats the only thing thats important for you.

      Hi Berliner,

      Don't worry, I know these are both clear folds and I wouldn't play them any other way ;)

      It's just disappointing to see a big pot that I "would have" won. Even more so when A4o is the hand that won Hand 1 :rolleyes:

      I know that we can't be results oriented though...otherwise when the flop comes down 772r I'd be saying "SEE, I should be playing 72o! I'm all-in!!!" :D

      Thanks,
