Whew Hand and thoughts on Button Hand

Nothing special last night as there was really no hands over 20bb which is OK by me. If I can keep a 14.31bb/100 rate and not win or lose big hands, I won't complain too much.

Here is a hand where I was sad that I missed because I timed out; but ending being a good thing. I most likely would have lost a bunch.

And the next hand is where I just want to get general thoughts. Maybe not so much on the hand itself but the thoughts behind it. One thing I do at these levels is pretty much play the cards. Of course, position is a big factor in the cards I do play; but here is a hand based solely on position. Again, give me your thoughts on the hand and/or the theory behind it.
