      Hand1: I still think bet here is ok since his high WTSD (ok small sample). He has been running good and might call you down lighter because of this + he probably calls down light in general. He can easily have Qx, Tx or even 9x there. I would bet/fold 6.5$

      Hand2: Ship it!

      Hello chocular77,

      Hand #1
      Check behind and rather skip the thin value. He has so far pretty high W$SD as well where we might even not see many loose calls as Qx. Of course it's a thin value-spot vs that loose opponent but I tend myself to Check behind in those spots. It may also make the opponent to tilt if he had the flush. :)

      Hand #2
      Ship for value, he has a lot of Qx hands there which are capable of paying.

      Best Regards.
