Thought i'd just post a couple hands - one to check my line - I suspect I went too passive, and the other as I thought it was a bit unusual although I played it in a standard way (I think).

Hand 1:

Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is CO with QsJh

2 folds, Hero raises, BTN calls, SB calls, BB calls
Flop (8.0 SB, 4 players)

Ac9sQc (hmm 2nd pair but the A kinda sux)

SB checks, BB bets, Hero raises, 1 fold, SB folds, BB calls (BB was a bit of a lag ... I think i'll reraise here for a free river card)
Turn (6.0 BB, 2 players)

5s (blank .. hopefully i'm in okay shape)

BB checks, Hero checks (still not convinced i'm in front .. will just check behind)
River (6.0 BB, 2 players)

Ks (hmmm another over to my pair .. hits the gutshot, completes the draw .. but surely those draws would have raised the turn?)

BB checks, Hero checks (i'm not super confident here. I think i just want to see a showdown)

Hand 2:

Pre-Flop (1.5 SB, 6 players) Hero is UTG+1 with TsTd

1 fold, Hero raises, 1 fold, BTN calls, SB calls, BB calls (not overly happy with all these callers preflop. any overcard is going to suck)
Flop (8.0 SB, 4 players)

5s3dTc (hahaha .. kaching!!)

SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets, BTN raises (damn dont want them scared off yet), SB calls (awesome ty), BB folds, Hero 3-bets (may as well pump the pot now given at least one of these guys has a piece of it), BTN calls, SB calls
Turn (8.5 BB, 3 players)

7d (well surely no one has 46 ... surely ... and even if they did I still have my 4 outs to the boat)

SB checks, Hero bets, BTN folds, SB raises, Hero 3-bets, SB calls (interesting .. c/r from the sb .. i cant see him calling with 46 in the sb .. he was reasonably tight. Might be concerned if he capped but i'd still be at least calling down and probably raising the river)
River (14.5 BB, 2 players)

2c (nice)

SB checks, Hero bets, SB calls
Final Pot: 16.5 BB
SB shows 5h5c (hehe set over set ... and he slowplayed the flop to c/r the turn ... i'd possibly do the same)
Hero shows TsTd

Hero wins 15.8 BB ( won +9.2 BB )
BTN lost -2.5 BB
SB lost -6.5 BB
BB lost -1.0 BB

Hand 1: You done well to get checked down to the river and keep the pot small. A bet on the Turn would've let you know where you were at more IMHO and probably a check, check on the river.

Hand 2: VNH! I wonder if you called the flop if you could get an extra BB on the turn/river? Nice result tho'
