      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.
