Hello everybody,





I am new to the forum, so hello. (I apologize if this is in the wrong section. )
An evaluation would be great, what could/should I have done better?

Cheers.

Hi J,

For future hands please limit to 1 per thread, it's easier for discussion.

Hand 1: fold on the flop. Changes are small our hand is good 6 ways, and we have very few cards to improve... only an 8 or 7 and our outs are tainted somewhat as the 7 makes JT the nuts, while both cards don't help vs. 98, 99, or 33.

Hand 2: Raise flop... it's an action board with KQ out there, slow playing this spot will tend to cost us $ in the long run.

Thanks a million for your help guys! I'll take your advice and will get the hang of this pretty quickly.

@TheLangolier: So with the first hand (quad 8s) it was primarily reckless luck that won. I see what you are saying.
In the second hand (FH) how aggressively should one raise, how do you find the balance between building a pot and defending your current hand. Or is there something else that I'm missing.
