Hello Tirys1703,

Could you please also add suits next time, it's hard to evaluate without them. Also please don't post more than 1 hand into 1 thread!

Hand #1

Preflop: Fold it here. You could check the starting hand chart, which does say to fold such a hand.

As played
Flop: You can likely Call here and reevaluate turn.
Turn: Likely also going broke.

Those evaluations are without suits.

Hand #2

Preflop: Fold preflop. See again the Starting Hand Start Article.

As played
Flop: Can likely Call this one, if we Called preflop and reevaluate turn.
Turn: Likely going broke is an option, but this has really nothing much to do with luck or anything if you had to fold the hand preflop.

Best regards.
