      Hello Tscek,

      First of all, don't post more than 1 hand into 1 thread. Thank you!

      Hand #1

      Preflop: I'd rather Call when there are more Callers, with being only against him HU, I don't really like it, also we don't really know against who we are playing. Therefore I'd fold.

      As played
      Flop: With the given implied odds, you can likely Call here and reevaluate turn. But that doesn't mean that we have to Call every draw.
      Turn: It's kinda close, he might be barreling here with pure air and what would not pay us the implied odds on river, therefore I sometimes even prefer to fold it right here.

      Hand #2

      Preflop: Should be fine, since we have another limper before us.

      As played
      Flop: Somehow I'd rather just Check behind and see what does MP3 do, but of course it's possible to bet it out here, since we are starting to build up the pot in case we hit our flush and also it could be possible that everyone folds here, but what's a rare situation because of the stakes. They tend to Call with any kind of hands. Therefore Check/Call could be even better.

      As played
      Turn: As we got pretty close implied odds on flop then likely we ain't getting them anymore here, I'd rather just fold my hand.

      As played if turn was Called
      River: What do you want to beat here? I think I'd rather just fold, even it's that smallish, we only Call for seeing his and, most likely not for being ahead.

      Best regards.
