            Hi kiddpokercj First hand QQ: Preflop looks goodumbup: Punish the limpers by raising!In real money games it is less likely that so many players will call your raise in these situations. The flop is not too good for us. Ks and 10s are in the other players ranges. Plus there are straight and flush draws. Checking looks good. Calling or reraising the villain on the flop are both viable lines. The short stack can pretty much be ignored at this point since he has so few chips left. On the turn, playing it safe and folding is the right action when you are unsure if you are ahead in a fast growing potumbup: Note however, I would have called or reraised the turn here. Firstly, the bet is very small compared to the pot. Secondly, when an opponent bets the same amount on the flop and turn, it is often a sign of a bluff or semi-bluff hand. Making these types of reads will come with more experience. Don't second guess yourself when you see the Q on the river! You made good choices throughout the hand. What happens on later streets is out of your control. There was only about a 4% chance of landing a Q on the final card. Second hand 99: Nice oneumbup: The flop looks scary with two aces, but is actually ok since you are last to act. The first to act min-bets into a big pot. This is usually a sign of weakness. Someone in early position that had an A typically check raises spots like this. The string of callers also seem weak. I like your solid reraise and the sizing looks good too. Well playedumbup: GL and have fun at the tables! Roland GTX

                          The first 2.00$ are gone. Had a read on that player, he was very loose but he got lucky on the river. This is the hand that caused the disaster.

                              Hi,

                              44 - The answer is bet. It's a limped pot, so there's only .08c out there preflop. We would like to build a big pot somehow, the only way to accomplish this goal is to bet and hope someone has a 6, a pocket pair, a draw, or is willing to peel a card with just overs. Our best chance to stimulate action is to bet directly on the flop, and it's essential to try and begin building the pot right away rather than let betting rounds go by with no money going in.


                              KcJc - Preflop looks good. Post flop is fine, the only thing I'd recommend is that you bet all in on the turn. You are committed with 2 pair, can definitely get called by worse, and only have a pot sized bet left (.80c left with .71c in the pot). Doubt it would change the result here but that's not the point, it gets maximum value from a loose caller.
