100 NL & Implied Odds

So I was getting crushed at 50NL and for some reason i decided to take a shot at 100NL. Amazingly I found the players there more weak tight and just as bad. basically i play two 50nl tables and one 100NL table. So far i've been doing well on the 100nl tables while just breaking even at 50nl. Still a small sample so i'm not making it permanent yet. But when i started my broll was at 800ish, now its at 1200ish.

The players seem really bad... everytime i've sat at a 100NL table there's been at least 2 fish and a calling station or vice versa, whereas at 50NL you rarely find such juicy tables anymore. below are three hands where i stacked some villian.... In two of them i used implied odds to call a large flop or pf raise... I think i used it correctly....

These three hands have been my biggest winners so far. they have one thing in common.... they are borderline junk! I think i'm playing well but i'm not sure i just may be running hot. I did make one awful call tonight though. it was so bad i don't think i'll even post it. But i know that i have to increase my discipline.
