Hi Keldraco!

Yes, this is a turbo and due to that, we want to be more aggressive, but I have to agree with the others here, as I'm folding both of these hands.

For hand one, QJ from early position is a bit too weak for me. If I had less than 5BB, I may try it, or if it was Ax, I may try it, but there are too many players left to act that can have a better hand than QJ.

The second one's a bit tougher. From middle position, unless I had a read on all the opps behind me, that they would fold most of the time, to a shove, I'm mucking here. I've got just under 10BB and I would hope that I can find a better situation or a slightly better hand. Yes, it's 2 broadway cards, but there are plenty of combinations that can be ahead of me with 5 players left to act.
If I was on the button or CO, I'm playing it, but not from middle position.

Instead of just taking a chance, I want to find a spot where I can be heads-up, especially in position, or have a better hand.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
