Grrr... this stupid game

Below you will find two of the best Stud/8 starts turn to total crap on consecutive hands, as I plunge from the top 5% of the field back to nearly my starting chips in the $1 Stars tourney.


Hand #1: At least I got a lot of free cards. And picked up my ace. And ended up with the worst possible two-pair. Yay.

Hand #2:

Rolled up deuces. I was pretty sure Villian didn't have a wheel. But he was freerolling me and made his straight. I'm unsure about betting into him on 6th instead of check/raising or check/calling. Betting is probably better because it maximizes my chances of winning the pot, which is getting large.
