Full Tilt -- no bad beat stories

Full Tilt Poker
lakong I've continued to receive some bad beats, but I've also began to suck-out just as much -- a few QQ and KK beating AA, my two pair getting all in on the turn against a made flush and hitting a full house, etc., etc. Of course i also have had my share of bad beats, but it all evens out in the end. That's poker as they say.

Here are two hands I would like to share:

Hand 1:

Full Tilt Poker
No Limit Holdem Ring game
Blinds: $1/$2
6 players
Converter

Stack sizes:
Hero: $266.30
UTG+1: $186.75
CO: $329.55
Button: $340.40
SB: $329.85
BB: $207.25

Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG with A J
Hero raises to $7, UTG+1 calls $7 (pot was $10), CO calls $7 (pot was $17), Button folds, SB calls $6 (pot was $24), BB folds.

Flop: A J 4 ($30, 4 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $20, UTG+1 folds, CO calls $20 (pot was $50), SB folds.

Turn: J ($70, 2 players)
Hero bets $44, CO raises to $104, Hero calls $60 (pot was $218).

River: 5 ($278, 2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $150, Hero calls all-in $135.3.
Uncalled bets: $14.7 returned to CO.

Results:
Final pot: $548.6
Hero showed As Jh
CO showed 4s 6s


In the above hand I had a very aggressive rep at this table having been raising lots of hands. I figured the raise on the turn meant that the opponent thought I was weak. The pot was fairly large and I was hoping he had nothing and felt that he needed to bluff me off of a medium strength hand on the river. It turned out that I was correct.

Hand 2:

Full Tilt Poker
No Limit Holdem Ring game
Blinds: $1/$2
6 players
Converter

Stack sizes:
UTG: $199.05
Hero: $294.90

SB: $381
BB: $200.65

Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is UTG+1 with 6 6
UTG raises to $6, Hero calls $6 (pot was $9), CO calls $6 (pot was $15), 3 folds.

Flop: Q Q 4 ($21, 3 players)
UTG checks, Hero bets $14, CO calls $14 (pot was $35), UTG folds.

Turn: 5 ($49, 2 players)
Hero bets $32, CO calls $32 (pot was $81).

River: K ($113, 2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $90, Hero calls $90 (pot was $203).

Results:
Final pot: $293
Hero showed 6d 6h
CO showed Td Ac


This was an interesting hand. I was pretty sure I was ahead leading up to the river. I felt that if I bet the river I could not stand a re-raise if the guy had a King so I checked. I expected him to bet, but not quite that big. At first I wasn't going to call, but it was a really large bet and if he wanted a call I don't think he would have bet that much. One other thing influenced my call which was pretty funny. At the exact same time this hand went down I had QQ on a second table and just got all in against AA on a rag flop. I rivered a Q and won just before my time to act was up in this hand. I decided that I was playing with someone else's money so it made the call much easier.
