      Hello guys...

      I´m pretty sure I played hand 1 right.
      I´m not so sure about hand 2 though, because of the ugly flop.
      I would very much like some opinions.

      I have no readings on the guys , because we had played only a dozen hands or so in both cases.

      Hand1

      Hero is CO ($9,87)
      Vilain is BU ($12,36)

      Preflop Hero(3 :spade: ,3 :diamond:)
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0,10, 2 folds, hero calls $0,10, vilain calls $0,10, SB folds,BB checks
      Pot ($0,45)
      Flop (9 :club: ,5 :heart: ,3 :club:)
      MP1 checks, Hero raises $0,40, Vilain calls $0,40, BB folds, MP1 folds
      Pot ($1,25)
      Turn J :spade:
      Hero bets $1,20, Vilain calls 1,20
      Pot ($3,65)
      River 4 :heart:
      Hero allin $8,27, Vilain calls 8,27

      Final pot ($20,19)

      Hand2

      Vilain1 is UTG+2 ($9,90)
      Vilain2 is MP2 ($6,35)
      Hero is MP3 ($11,99)

      Preflop Hero (7 :club: ,7 :spade:)

      2 folds, Vilain1 bets $0,30, 1 fold,Vilain2 calls $0,30, hero calls 0,30, 4 folds
      Pot ($1,05)
      Flop (A :diamond: ,T :heart: ,J :club:)
      Vilain1 checks, Vilain2 checks, Hero checks
      Pot ($1,05))
      Turn 7 :diamond:
      Vilain1 checks, Vilain2 checks, Hero bets $0,80, Vilain1 calls 0,80, Vilain2 folds
      Pot ($2,65)

      River 9 :heart:

      Vilain checks, hero bets $3, Vilain1 goes allin $8,80, Hero calls5,80

      Hand2: Should I have bet/fold?

      Hi Gungunhana!

      I think you played both hands well. In hand 1 you could make a smaller valuebet on the river, but if you are sure that your opponent calls this huge overbet it's ok to play it that way. If he hit his straight in hand 2: so be it. You cannot fold your set here. Too often you will see two pairs here.

      Good luck at the tables!

      (Hand 1) I don't think that this overbet on the river makes any sense. What should he call you with?

      (Hand 2) Well played.

      Hi gutshotstraightdraw!

      He already called two big bets on the flop and on the turn. That indicates that he hit something and is willing to pay. Sometimes these big overbets make sense (especially against calling stations)

      Good luck at the tables!
