First hand no reads. Looking at it now he was in the sb so could have had a lower 2 pair? Make it more on the flop?

2nd hand decided to get a little tricky pre flop, make it more on the flop? Play it differently. Looking back it looks like both the last 2 hands I didnt raise enough to get a good idea where I was. Showed too much weakness

In both of hese spots I think you would be better off potting the flop. If you're going to checkraise, checkraise big. I call the push in hand 1, fold to the push in hand 2.

First hand I really dont think this 10J with that huge bet, you gota call.

2nd hand, raise PF, as played I'd fold.

NL 25, I'd go broke both hands as played.

But you should raise pf in both hands.
