      1. hand cbet turn protect your hand [ bet / fold ]
      river value bet [ assuming you both having 100bb stacks]

      2. hand bet turn 2/3 pot [ bet / fold ]
      river block bet (since he is passive) [ assuming you both having 100bb stacks]

      Thanks, I think however I played these hands I would have lost (as we both had pretty good hands so neither would have folded) - Big losses though unfortunately (for me)! and to the same player =[

      Hello Chrisrules334,

      Would be nice if you next time posted 1 hand per thread so we could concentrate on only one hand and wouldn't have to scroll so much up and down. :D Thanks!

      Add to full stack if you playing BSS.

      Hand #1
      Protect your hand on the turn yourself and bet it rather than turn it into bluff-catcher and give away free cards.

      Hand #2
      Preflop: With your stack it's not the greatest option to Call, you should rather fold the hand or just 3bet.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet the turn bigger and do you expect him to have a lot Ax hands in his Check-behind range there on flop? If you do then sure you can go all-in.

      Best Regards.
