Studies related to two-body charmless hadronic decays of B mesons (B->hh decays) at LHCb are presented. Application of an incorrect proper time resolution model in the analysis to measure the CKM angle gamma may bias the fitted values of gamma and other parameters. A Monte Carlo-independent method to extract the resolution model from data is described. Also a selection for the rare decays B_{d/s}-> p pbar is presented. LHCb expects to make an observation of B_{d}-> p pbar with as little as 250pb^{-1} of data, depending on its branching ratio.
