      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $24,75
      CO:
      $4,29

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Hand1: maybe raise bigger preflop so shove is not so big. But on the flop, I really don't know what best move is.

      Hand2: I fold (unless he has very low foldto3bet%)

      Hand 3: Depends on foldtocbet%.

      Hand 4: Vs most fish I fold this because they will show a lot of pocket pairs here. This is has 90 vpip so I might call more easily (depending on postflop stats).

      Hand 5: Vs such high AF, I 'm getting it in too. He definitely has 2x in his range.

      With hands like these, I think it depends on their postflop play a lot. Although you don't have much hands on them, sometimes you can already see if they are aggressive or passive.

      Interesting hands! Spots like these happen all the time.

      Thx for your Comment Ipdlamei.

      Don't have reliable stats for Hand 2&3.
      But as you said just watching them play should help with such decisions.
      I maybe try to play one table less so i can concentrate more on the rest.

      If i can't be sure the best thing should be a fold since i loose the minimum.
      And even if it isn't much 5-8 dollars add up if it becomes a habit.

      Hi,

      1) I think putting him all-in on the flop is fine
      2) You´re likely pot committed, so calling shove should be fine
      3) I´d also shove turn, although don´t think you have that much fold equity, but your general equity with overcards+oesd is very good to get all-in on the turn
      4) prefer b/f flop, since you don´t get that good odds and I doubt he would shove there random hands
      5) fine

      best regards,
