These are, imo, the two most interesting hands I played in my generally disastrous session last night. I'love to hear your thoughts on my play.
1. Hero is UTG w/ offsuit pocket aces.
Hero raises to 10. Relatively unknown tight passive player in MP calls. Another call on the button, and one in the big blind.
~40 in the pot, 4 players to the flop.
Hero checks. Tight passive bets 30. Others fold. Hero folds.
2. (My memory's a little hazy on the specifics of this one, chime in if you remember anything, Royal).
Hero is in late position with 88.
Royal raises to 9 from middle position. Hero calls. At least two other callers to the flop.
Royal bets 20. Hero calls. Others fold.
Turn is a K♣. Royal checks. Hero bets 30. Royal raises to 70. Hero calls.
(FYI, At this point I am pretty certain that Royal does not have a strong hand, ie, a King or a deuce)
River is a 4♦. Royal bets 100. Hero calls.
