      Hello HughJazz82,

      Would be great if you would post 1 hand per thread. :) Much easier to evaluate for us and we can concentrate on one hand.

      Hand #1
      Guess it's likely the safest play to fold as you rather went for a bigger hand. Although myself I guess I'd still Call on turn. He may even donk with some weaker hand. But that's true while haven't invested much into the pot shouldn't be wrong to fold directly there.

      Hand #2
      I'd bet the turn as well for free showdown, he may easily have bluffed there on river after seeing you Checking behind.

      Best regards.
