      1) You could push pre-flop, since you will be commited post-flop. However, with 21BB stack raise is also fine. Flop played well. Your stack is almost twice smaller then pot and there is a good chance that you are holding the best hand.

      2) check/ call or fold (depends on the pot odds). As played, push on turn.

      Hand 1)

      The bet preflop should have been 60c but definintely cbet/all-in the flop.

      Hand 2)

      We never bet draws from free plays only bet minimum top pair/A or K kicker. So you should have played c/f.

      This is my first instructional reply so better wait for the judges response :D

      Watto77, 4bb + 3 limpers x 1BB = 7BB + we cann add 1BB from the blinds. But as I said, better to push

      Yeah i didnt see the sb limp and just read the instruction on adding 1 BB for the blinds.

      Is that for all situations adding 1 BB for the blinds or just by choice?

      For all, but you should do it only when you are good enough post-flop.
