Prefaced by saying I'm a newbie.Hand 1: I play the same. Extremely connected flop, I assume I'm behind and c/fHand 2: I fold the turn. Even getting 11.5 to one, you only have overcards, which might not even be clean.Hand 3: I fold the river. What could villain possibly have that you beat?

I was very tempted to just quote lifelessimp's advice, too, but I won't. That said, pretend I did. :club:

hand 1: bet the flop. Just because it's coordinated doesn't mean they hit it. Slow down if called by more than 1 person on that turn, thoughhand 2: fold the river. unless you have a read that he 3-bets with a very wide range of hands. and if he does 3-bet with a wide range of hands, the rest of the hand plays different, too.hand 3: raise the flop to force 2 cold on CO if you think BB is betting a draw. otherwise, fold the turn.
Rise,

I like the whole hand. You should play drunk more often. :)

Hand 1:Flop is low cards, chances are lower that opponents hit it. I'd fire, and call a raise. If no one raises, then depending on the turn, I'd fire again. With a board that low, loose villains could peel with anything. UI, I'm check/folding the river, though. And the turn would be a bet/fold.Given the turn that came in this particular example, I'm check/folding the turn, but I'm betting on the flop to thin the field, folding 6 outers like 9T or something like that.Hand 2:You have to fold the river. The rest is good. But seriously, he would need to showdown AJ for your hand to be good there. I don't think this happens 1 in 14 times. If the board double paired, I'll defend calling, but not in this case.Hand 3:Gaybets piss me off. I raise the flop though. I usually will bet the turn as a semibluff, now that we have picked up the hearts draw, and due to my flop raise, we are probably heads up, and checked to. If he donks it, I just call the turn. River is a fold again. Hand plays differently if you raise the flop though. Ideally, this is how I would like the hand to go: I raise the flop, it's checked to me on the turn, I bet, with the CO having folded, I'm happy seeing a free showdown unimproved, but I'm never calling a donk bet on the river.- Zach
