After going through some of my hands, I've realized that I'm losing money playing medium pocket pairs. Here are three hands that I recently played. Basically I'm betting the flop and check folding the turn in most these hands. Is that a leak and if so how do I go about fixing that? What will be your approach towards these hands pre and post flop?
First hand just check, second hand go all in (i don,'t know why you have 40bbs but easy decision to shove Js with 40bbs) and 3rd hand just watch players stack (ok you have 40bbs again) but button has 34.. just play with 100bbs and you will have more room for calling.
JJ is not a medium pair hand esp on that flop
In my opinion
1 hand - I would call the turn bet, to see whats happen in the river...
2 hand - in this position with that stack I would go to all in or open with 0,25 for just only player to possible pay with a strong hand
3 - do the basic 3bet to 0.18 or even shove this 99, try isolate more the players with your 3bet
