      Sick cold decking tonight.... down 4 buy-ins playing BSS and 2 SSS. I think I'll pack it in for the night... X(

      1- I think I should fold this hand PF. AJo isn't a hand I like to call a raise with, but in position I think I should be more aggressive...? Villain's donkbet on the river made me think he's trying to steal with Ax.

      2- My slow-play backfired on me. Once again I think this should be folded pre-flop. Not that strong of a hand and I'm out of position. I knew the paired board gave a full-house draw, so slow-playing the flush is probably not the best.

      1. I would call the river, only hands that have you beat is aces or kings (unlikely that UTG raised with deuce), you win or split pot with other UTG raise hands.
      2. Bet turn, bet river. I guess CO had TT? If so then bet on turn might have scared him away.

      1) 6-handed game both call, fold or raise might be correct depending on the players. Against tight players I rather fold, than call- against loose players I would 3-bet. probably would also 3-bet against 18/15, because they´ll open very wide range with they can´t call re-raise oop. So calling is fine, since you have position and can always check turn if you hit your A for pot control.

      I think you played that hand fine, you´re beat AA, KK, 2x, but there are also a lot of worse Ax hands that bet pot on the river.

      2) I would fold second hand A9s oop. If the Co steals a lot then I´ll prefer 3-bet rather than call. I would also fold flop: paired board- a lot of action and you don´t know if your A high flushdraw might be good.
      I would bet out 4$ on the turn to get value with my hand
      I would bet out 4$ on the river, cause every overpair would probably call your bet.
