      Hand 1

      I call BB re-raise, and mostlikely shove any card on turn..

      Hand 2

      4:club: is blank for sure, I make a small valuebet. 7-9$

      Hand 1: I don't like to raise here. If you have the best hand, you are missing value on the following streets since he will often folds, if you are beaten, then you are losing more money.

      Hand 2: I don't think villain will call three streets of value betting here, so I like to check to maybe induce a bluff.

      Hi henne007,

      Hand 1:
      Just call his raise and reevaluate on the turn, the board is very dry, after your raise, only better hands will call (or raise) you. Of course, if he 4-bets just throw your hand away.

      Hand 2:
      I think I'd check/call turn, there isn't a lot to protect against. I'd go for pot control.
      As played, I'd bet/fold river, you'll still get a call from Ax hands, but don't make it too much, 1/2 pot is fine IMO.
