      I just called the flop to maybe keep the fish in. his hand actually looks very strong: most probably a set or at least 2 pair.
      On the turn he really looks like a set and I think a fosd is ok here.

      On the flop can I ever fold on this board?
      Would it be better to 3bet the flop?

      scenario 2:
      On Game No-Limit Hold'em, $0.20 BB (6 handed) - On Game Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($23.84)
      MP ($26.59)
      CO ($16.90)
      Button ($25.18)
      Hero (SB) ($26.16)
      BB ($13.40)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, 4
      1 fold, MP calls $0.20, 1 fold, Button bets $1, Hero raises $2.90, 2 folds, Button calls $2

      Flop: ($6.40) 8, 2, A (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.20, Button raises $9.60, Hero raises $19.96 (All-In), Button calls $12.58 (All-In)

      This time I decided to shove on the flop with my top pair and flush draw.
      I have a problem playing this hand because I can't really beat anything but smaller flush draw combinations, even though the hand looks strong.

      both times your hand is monster and you´re flipping against two pair hands and are a littlebit behind against sets, so you can´t really fold your hand on the flop. If you think player can make moves then I would prefer b/c flopa dn then c/rai on the turn.

      First hand your biggest problem is that UTG would likely only limp call cmall pp-s than 5h6h or some other suited connectors. So if he hasn´t shown any reason to bluff off his stack then I would fold turn

      Second hand I would never fold my hand, being oop I think shove is better since he would my take his free turn card and then you can´t stack his lower flushdraws

      best regards,
