      Hand 1: I would raise flop * but if you don't want to for whatever reason, raise turn. You need to get some money in.

      Hand 2: I would fold pre. Flop you would imagine someone else would bet so a check is pretty reasonable. As played I would bet more OTT. As played I would bet more OTR.

      * Straights are annoying to slowplay because there are so many bad cards for a straight and no good ones.

      Hello wizo656,

      Would be nice if you next time posted 1 hand per thread if they ain't connected so we could concentrate on one hand. Thanks. :)

      Hand #1
      Preflop: What's the reason for calling in first place here? You are often vs better Ax hands while against UTG. Therefore you can't really hope that you Call and always hit, neither you wont be ahead if you hit your Ace nor you wont know where you at with your T if you hit it. Neither you don't have more people in the pot to play the hand multiway. So what's your plan with the hand? :)

      As played
      Postflop: Raise the flop, raise the turn. Of course Raise the flop is kind of must, to get value from worse and protect your hand.

      Hand #2
      Preflop: Fold it, even vs the min-raise cause you rarely will even know where you stand with your flush if you hit it.

      As played
      Flop: I'd most likely just start building up the pot right on the flop. If they have a hand they are willing to pay you anyways with FD or any PP. You don't even have to bet it very big.
      Turn: Bet it bigger, you now going to miss value if you Bet so small and neither wont get paid much if they even hit something while it's a paired board.

      As played
      River: Could even consider Check/Shoving cause not that many worse hands pay you but if he has flush then he is definitely going to Bet it .

      Best Regards.
