      I'm torn on this one. His raise on the flop screamed 2 pair but the strategy says to push, right?

      The first hand is a clear fold, i'd say. You wont make any money if you bet flop and make your flush. The turn fold is clear because your flush is too little to call.

      Second hand is interesting. A limp from UTG+1 could mean an overpair like KK AA being slowplayed. I think I'd call the flop and see what the turn brings. Then check/call check/fold depending on bet size. The all-in is too much in my opinion because no worse hand would call you other than an 86 or an out-kicked 9 which is not likely based on position of villain.

      1. good
      2. bet/fold flop imo
      could be an overpair as musashi said, the pot is small and your hand isn´t stong enough to go broke with

      Hand 1.)
      Good.

      Hand 2.)
      I would call here the flop and play check/fold Turn unimproved. Bet/Fold Flop is also ok.
