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

      SB ($55.25)
      BB ($8.75)
      UTG ($54.60)
      UTG+1 ($20.65)
      Hero ($10.25)
      MP2 ($23.25)
      MP3 ($48.75)
      CO ($51.40)
      Button ($50)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:spade: , Q:heart: .
      [color:#666666]2 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2[/color], [color:#666666]4 folds[/color], SB calls $1.75, [color:#666666]1 fold[/color].

      Flop: ($4.50) T:club: , K:club: , 4:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $3[/color], SB calls $3.

      Turn: ($10.50) 5:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $5.25 (All-In)[/color], SB calls $5.25.

      River: ($21) 5:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 1 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $21

      Any reason to slow down on the turn after he called my flop bet? I figured his check/call on the flop could easily be a flush draw and decided to push any non-club turn. Burning money or OK?

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

      MP2 ($64)
      CO ($8.75)
      Button ($53.10)
      SB ($19.95)
      Hero ($10.70)
      UTG ($48)
      UTG+1 ($52.15)
      MP1 ($54.10)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:spade: , 8:spade: .
      [color:#666666]6 folds[/color], SB completes, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($1) J:diamond: , 4:spade: , 8:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $0.5[/color], SB calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($2) 4:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      SB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.5[/color], SB calls $1.50.

      River: ($5) 9:heart: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]SB bets $1.5[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $8.2[/color], SB calls $6.70.

      Final Pot: $21.40

      Should I have bet $1 on the flop? I figured top two pair on a fairly drawless board wasn't terribly vulnerable. Any reason to slow down on the turn? I didn't think it too likely for SB to call the flop with just a pair of fours. River push OK? Or just call here?

      Hand 3:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (9 handed)

      CO ($63.25)
      Button ($16.20)

      River: ($22.25) T:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Final Pot: $22.25

      I figured after blowing through two stacks in a very short period of time (Hands 1 & 2) that people may loosen up against me (to get in the hand against the "fish" that is burning money ;) )...so I had no problem pushing my AK all-in after the re-raise.

      Hand 4:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed)

      Button ($61.75)
      SB ($30.05)
      BB ($64.30)
      UTG ($9.35)

      CO ($21.95)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A:spade: , K:diamond: .
      UTG calls $0.50, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2.5[/color], [color:#666666]4 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]SB raises to $4.5[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], UTG folds, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $10[/color], SB calls $5.50.

      Flop: ($21) J:diamond: , 9:club: , K:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Turn: ($21) Q:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      River: ($21) A:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]

      Final Pot: $21

      Basically same preflop logic as the last hand here. After SB showed KK, trumping my two pair, I decided it was time to leave the table...the cards were OBVIOUSLY not going my way at this table. Also, I figured any semblance of a table image I might have had has at this point been completely blown to smithereens ;) I decided that losing 4 stacks at one table was more than enough :rolleyes:

      Incidentally, after today's disastrous session, I've finally had to give in and move back down to NL25 :( At least the first few hands there have gone infinitely better than most of my NL50 hands ever did (with the exception of a few huge AA pots) :D

      Hand 1.)
      I give up that hand on the Turn and just check behind, he could have called with a K, a Flush, a Flushdraw, Two Pair or a Set.

      So against Unknown I would check behind the Turn.

      Hand 2.)
      Nice play on Flop and Turn, but on the River I only call his donk. He could hold a 4 or he slowplayed a set. His donk bets indicates that he has strong hand since he does not want to risk you to check behind. Even J9 beats you here. So just call. I´m sure in 80% he would have stacked you. ;)

      Hand 3.)
      Hmm sometimes I consider to fold here, when I know that MP3 is very tight, since I often only have a coinflip or dominated by AA and KK, but when you tell me that they were playing looser against you, I like it.

      Hand 4.)
      Honestly on Nl $100 I fold that often with reads, since players like to do that with AA or KK, they only minraise Short Stackes to make them push and collect their money. But against unknown, nice hand.
