On the first hand everyone says I made a monster flop. Did I? Should I be willing to go broke on what could end up being a flush draw? What am I trying to accomplish by raising big here? Am I likely ahead on this flop? I know if I am not ahead I have outs but what is the purpose of raising here.
The QQ hand is all good advice. I think I call on these hands sometimes to see if I can hit a good flop. I should just re-raise pre-flop and when he comes over the top of me fold.
Hand three is the one that I consistantly play poorly. My main problem is TPTK is a shit hand and I want to keep the pot small in case I have been outdrawn. I for sure had to fold that river but how do you play TPTK? If I lead out with $5 then do I bet the turn and pot commit myself? Do I drop it there? Am I willing to go all in? How the hell do you play these kinds of hands. The TPTK is the most common and hardest to play hand for me.
