Okay Corey, in an attempt to put all this rubbish behind us and actually give you some answers; here are some thoughts.

First hand:

Okay, after four people limp ahead of you, I think with JJ your options are to either become a fifth limper, or raise much more substancially (say to $2.00, if not even more). Playing such low stakes, your $1.00 raise is likely to chase anyone out. But, in this case, it humorously chased everyone of the original limpers out, yet you still had 3 people cold call the raise behind you (God Bless low stakes, right?). Alright, after the flop, (which was a pretty bad flop for you), I wouldn't have bothered with a continuation bet. Its good that you are making continuation bets, but against 3 other opponents with an overcard on board, you're basically throwing your money away.

The turn was a pretty decent one for you. So you bet another $2.00... at this point, why not? River is obviously your dream. It bailed you out. If the guy actually had KK, K5, or K6, then thats life; pay him off.

Second Hand:

Again, only a 4x raise. I'd have gone 10x in this situation. JJ isn't the type of hand where I want to be up against four opponents. Raise more to isolate.

As for the rest of the hand once the flop comes, I have no comments. You played it the same way I would have. If your opponent had AA-QQ, then he just flat out played it well.

So there you have my thoughts.
