      First hand you have a gutshot too.

      But even then I would play both hands passive. I would c/c if I had nice odds.

      you should've played both hands passively especially as there were so many players in the hand after the flop

      1) check/ call or fold odds <-> check/push. Take it as a rule - betting your draws oop doesn`t make much sense) There are some cases when it makes, but normally, I prefer standard passive check / call odds line. However, here we have more outs ~11, so check/push might be an option.

      as played, flop and river are fine.

      2) there is no point in betting your draw against 5 opps oop again. You don`t have the fold equity, anyway. Here you have only 9 outs, so we play check/call odds without stats.

      as played, push turn. you have some outs, plus the guy is playing strange. I would put him on some kind of a weak draw.

      I agree, iF would have some outs on turn or river and there would be miniraise, but with big raise i would c/f.
