      Both hands are played against the same person. He is loose passive, min-raise pre-flop only, then just plays check/call and never folds when he decides to play. I did not know that when I played first hand, I though he was weak there and could have paid me off with weaker hands. Second hand - I am not sure about a thing anymore.

      $0,02/$0,04 NL Hold'em (shorthanded)
      UTG2 ($1,50 in chips)
      CO ($1,78 in chips)
      BTN ($1,41 in chips)
      BB ($2,51 in chips)
      UTG1: Hero ($1,94 in chips)

      Dealt to Hero Ks,Qc

      Hero raises to $0,16, 2 folds, BTN calls $0,16, 1 fold

      Flop: 6h,Kh,As
      Hero bets $0,24, BTN calls $0,24

      Turn: 4c
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: 8s
      Hero bets $0,42, BTN calls $0,42

      BTN shows 9h Ac and wins the pot with Pair of Aces

      Hello JohnDoe1313,

      First of all, don't post multiple hands into one thread. Just link them next time. And as well where did you get the hand histories? Try converting them, we can't really read the pot or either suits aren't that great either. Hard to read the hand and hard to say either you made a correct bet or not.

      About the hands:
      Hand #1
      Rather skip the bet on river, there ain't that many worse hands anyways and he could easily have the Ace.

      Hand #2
      Didn't really calculate the pot but definitely your bet sizings is wrong. Although betting 3 streets should be somewhat fine, he is capable of Calling with worse.

      Best regards.

      Ok, sorry about posting multiple hands. In the second hand I bet 2/3 of the pot on the flop, 1/2 on the turn and also 1/2 on the river. How much should I have bet?
