Not sure how I should have played this hand. Should I have reraised the turn?
And for the second example, should I have raised in MP, and should I raise on the river, despite fear of straight?

Hello Rob,

If you really want an evaluation, then you could try posting the hand evaluation section where you will get a detailed evaluation by one of the many hand judges here at poker strategy.

Here is a link to the FL section for you.

Good luck, and welcome to the community

EDIT** when you post your hands try and remember to delete the results of the hands as this makes it easier for the judges to give an unbiased opinion. You can always post the results after they have evaluated.

I'd also suggest posting only one hand per thread.

I would cap the turn on both hands at 0.4 FL, and raise river in hand 2 too.

Also prob fold river in hand 1.
