What do you think about them? The first hand is very interesting – I wonder how I should have played it. I think I should have bet the flop. But when I don’t – should I fold?
The 2nd I don’t think I could have gotton away from it and I think going allin is what I was hoping for. But what do you think about how I played the hand? It was so hard to put him on TT that hand – but even if I could have put him on TT – I’m not getting away from it. The only way I can get away from it is if a heart (and I don’t hit my full house) comes on the turn and he bets allin. But then I still might have called.
