      Those two hands were like 1 minute apart...

      1)

      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:spade: , 6:heart:
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.10, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 calls $0.10, 3 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks.

        I was stupid on the flop, I should have raised more, could have lost all my stack if an heart had hit the board...

      SB checks, MP1 checks.

      Final Pot: $6.20

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      SB shows [ Td, Ac ] two pairs, Eights and Fours
      MP1 shows [ 9h, Th ] two pairs, Eights and Fours
      Hero shows [ 7s, 6h ] a straight Four to Eight

        Trapping is fun...

      Hero wins $11.42 USD with a flush, Ace high.


      Feels nice, I finally have much over the profit mark on partypoker. Was about time... Dont worry I dont do that often, I will only call 1B if there are several callers before me AND I am on the button with connectors, or suited ace-rags or medium/low pocket pairs...

      I was sick of winning only small pots with the SSS, so I decided I would continue to stick to it, but I would call for 1BB when the SSS tells me to fold and plays some more hands on the button...

      I guess your going to tell me is that the danger with this is that if I call with 99, and the flop come 257 then Im going to think I have the best hand because I have an overpair for example. But I know better, I improved since I signed here and I know I won't do that, for me 99 on that flop would be the 6th best hand, so I would check/fold it unless Im first to talk (then I would make a c-bet and then check/fold). Because I know thats what dangerous with those kind of hands...

      Same with suited ace-rags if the flop comes A84, I know for example that my A-7 is the 7th Ace-kicker hand, so its a trash hand...

      Hand 1.)
      Like you said, do not min-raise here but Bet at least Pot if not go All-In. Any FD, Straight / Straightdraw, Set, Two Pair and Overpair will call you here.


      Hand 2.)
      Why are you playing Big Stack here? Even as a BSS that would be a fold preflop. Like played bet more on the Turn and go All-In against further action.

      Those hands were like 1 minute apart, I was going to leave when the blinds reach me. With 4.50$ I decided to call 1BB in hand 2...

      Still its better to fold here Hand 2.) when you have no experience how to play with a bigger stack. But then like played is was good.
