      Hello foulkezboyz,

      Preflop: Of course it's possible to complete those hands if you are also sure in your postflop game. For example I am pretty sure if the guy would have shoved on the river you would have just called it down and then lose all your stacks. To avoid those spots rather don't complete such hands which don't hit much.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment and difficult to fold on the river for the given odds while he could even be min-raising with Tx. Myself I'd Bet it bigger on the flop/turn.

      Best Regards.
