      Hello muel294,

      First hand is pretty standard vs that kind of stack, there is no way we can get away.

      About the 2nd hand is kinda tough. I would most likely even play there rather passively and just Call and reevaluate further actions. If we put him on a very strong hand something like:

      Board: 4:club: 5:heart: 6:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    75.36%  74.43%   0.93% { 66-44, 87s, 87o }
      UTG+1  24.64%  23.72%   0.93% { 3h2s }

      Then we ain't getting very good equity. Or do we expect the opponent to overplay his 2pairs?

      Best regards.

      Wow i wouldnt have expected to be in such bad shape with sets+ in his range. My line cant really be bet/fold here so i should try to keep the pot small and if the board develops badly i can get away cheaply?

      Whether this opponent could overplay 2pairs i could not tell with only 37 hands. Probably not however.

      Yep, most likely in those freeplay pots I'd rather keep it smaller unless I have the nuts.
