      Hand #1:
      If I'm you I would check behind on the turn. A more aggressive player than I might bet around 2/3 the size of the pot, but I check behind for the free card. The 4 is dangerous here and with no reads I'd be all about pot control in this situation. You're only holding a pair of 8's here, so I think it's important to maintain fold equity. Never commit chips to the pot if you don't need to.

      Hand #2:
      A 6xBB raise PF with a small pocket pair is a bit much, IMO. I prefer limping with these for set value, or a standard 3xBB raise if you're IP and there's no limpers in front. Throw out a continuation bet on the flop, but if you get a call there's no point in fishing for a gutshot.

      1) push or check behind, imo. I would push

      2) push flop

      winrate is fine, just keep posting and playing
