      I didn´t think it through. He was SB, so his calling range is quite big. Only hands that`m behind are probably JT and 22. It is more likely that he check-re-raised with JQ, J9, JK, T9, TK, TA, straight draws. So I should push flop. If he has JT, I still have probably 8 outs, against 22 I´m really behind, but that´s just bad luck and I always have 2 outs, which I hit on the turn^^
      Turn was too scary to slowplay, so I pushed all-in and hoped that he didn´t make straight.

      This is tricky. I´ve played at the the same player in hand 1 and he seemed LAG. Min-reraised pre-flop, easy re-raise. Flop was very bad and I think that he probably hit something that´s why I didn´t bet almost the pot, because I was expecting re-raise. He called. I think that I should bet/fold turn, only problem, I´m OOP and can´t take free SD if he calls. So I decided to check/call. Don´t know if calling the best thing here, but pot was not so big and I thought that he probably won´t bet again on the river. 8 was terrible card and I can´t call his push. Actually 9 was pretty nice card, because then I can beat QJ and no draws completed. So if the river had been blank I would have called his all-in move my two pair. Maybe he was bluffing with his busted straight/flush draw and top pair:)

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) nice hand. You only call the flop minraise because you don't want to risk your whole stack when you are probably already up against two pair or set. You are in position so a call on the flop and reeavuating on the turn seems to be the right thing to do. On the turn it's an easy decision.

      Hand 2) Bet pot on the flop to protect your hand against draws. On the turn I would play bet/fold because you beat QJ now and you don't want to give freecards for possible draws.

      Good luck at the tables!
