      Once again, 1 hand per topic is easier. Spamming is OK in this part of the forum :)

      Hand 1: In such a multiwaypot it's maybe better to play your draw passively. So think about check/raisnig instead of donkbetting.
      If they all check you get a free card and the chance to hit your draw. If they bet you can raise them since you're holding a monsterdraw and you just want to make the pot bigger.

      Hand 2: Easy c/f, your flushdraw isn't worth anything here and can only cause trouble.

      Hand 3: Preflop raise to $1.20 instead of $1.00 (4BB+1BB per limper).
      Pot would have been $2.60 and your stack $2.80, which makes it an easy push on the flop.
      You still should have made a cbet on this flop, somewhere around $1.40 or an immediate push as well.
      But if you raise more preflop, it's an much easier push on the flop, which gives you more FE.

      Hi jmackenzie,

      good explanations by dekuip, nearly nothing to add.

      Hand1: I like check/raise a free card wouldn't hurt you and you dont have to build a pot like a bss player need to do.

      Hand3: preflop 1,2$ push any flop
