      Should I ever pot control on turn or river here with T, K and Q on the board? Or Just stack him in. He could have a draw which didn't hit on the river as well as top pair so could I have done something different on the river?

      I think you should make your hand posts in different threads, that way it will be easier for the judges ;)

      On the first hand I think it's fine to cbet flop, but as one of them calls you, he has to have something on that flop, I think pot control is ok here, but if he bets strong I think your beat.
      Your bet size seems weak here, are you value betting still?
      And I guess giving up on river is fine as you are oftent against broadways here perhaps slowplayed set?

      The second hand.
      Bet flop give up turn Fd got there it even completed straights, and his bet is rather strong and yeah they rarely bluff this limit ;) Especially being the fish he is, he could call with a variaty of ranges, and it seems your bet size didn't scare him off preflop, but be happy he won, this way we can take his money later :P

      Hand 1

      We have like 5 limpers right? According to basic preflop strategy we raise to 4bb+1 per limper so we should raise to 9bb. 9bb is a little too big though, so 8 or 7 could be acceptable. I think 6bb is way too small and you could easily get 2 or more callers here which we want to avoid as much as possible.

      I think it's clear that we should bet twice at the very least for value against all sorts of broadway hands. Let's see our river decision now...

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 47.37% 47.37% 0.00% AhAc
      MP3 52.63% 52.63% 0.00% AJs+, K9s+, J9s, AJo+, KTo+

      I think this is being fairly optimistic. I assumed he has K9s and doesn't limp/reraise AK preflop. I also included AQ and we don't even have 50% vs his calling range. It's safe to conclude that we can't have a value bet here.

      So given that our equity is quite high here and there are a number of busted flush draws, best line is to c/c.

      It could be a valueshove on the River though, if you know he has way more KX hands than what I assigned him with.
