      In my opinion in both situations I wouldn't do the conti bet because of you don't have stats on the villains. I would just check/fold but I may be too tight, lets see what judges advice.

      I don't exactly understand your question. What is the difference between playing against a $3, $15 stack and a $100 stack? There is no difference because it's all more than your stack. You can't lose more than you have...

      You played the first hand good, standard continuation bet on the flop, which forces you to go all-in, so nh.

      Second hand, also good cbet on the flop. But as soon as he calls, you should check/fold, because your A high isn't good enough. You can only beat a bluffcall here, but I don't think Villain would bluffcall ;)
      So turn check/fold.

      Well first one is cool, I guess. You need to cbet, that's for sure. Push is the only way, so it's an easy decision.

      Secon one is also fine, at least if it comes to preflop and flop play. Turn shove is abvoiusly wrong as you have nothing and don't relaly need to second barrel.

      I'm just curious is it wise to conti bet when you don't hit on the flop against a big stack because they might think, "ohwell, it's only $1.40, what the heck" and they might call with bottom pair or gut-shot or something like that.

      so your trying to disagree with me that a big stack couldn't play loose?

      I was at the table, yesterday I was playing with a guy that had $60+ on a 5/10c table and he was limping with absolutely anything preflop.

      have you ever had over 100BB and limped with any suites cards, connectors, low pockets pair?

      Try telling me now that someone with a big stack could not play loose.
      Of course it's stupid and only a donk would but its definitely possible.
