My thoughts here were on how we need to maximize every opportunity when you can. Laying down a monster because the circumstances say so...bluffing for the same reason.

ps..someone can tell the lame-o here how to use the hand replayer now.

Hand 1.
I usually dodge 3 ways like the plague so would be folding most of the time as well.
Why not raise preflop?

Hand 2.
A lot of players bluff flop or cbet with out thinking and shutdown on the turn.
I look for spots like what you have done hear in cash,against a thinking player.
They think I have given up and fire a steal and I shove.They will think I was slowplaying
since I tend to mix it up but do check turn with monsters to set up that exact play.

Those were some great reads on your part..specially on the first example. Although I agree that I would've re-raised if not even 4-bet on the button. But with just a 3-bet more than likely you wouldve got called and then there would've been trouble.

As of hand 2 it's also a good read on your part. Although its understandable he would limp in in position..whats the point of doing that if you're not going to c-bet after the flop. I imagine he had something similar to you. He played it poorly and you capitalized very good. Nice post..

Hand 1: With 12 BB's and a weak limper in front, shove AQ >> limping. As played easy fold given the action sequence unless both villains are spazzes... good discipline making it.

Hand 2: Orphan pot, nice job claiming it.
