      I'm a bit unsure of what to do on the first one... but I think I'd have gone all in.
      You have 5 - 6 outs for the flush (9 - 3 or 4 since you only have one card in your hand and you're only aiming at the 3rd flush) + 2 outs to complete 3 of a kind.

      And your opponent was playing rather passively. so I wouldn't think he had much in his hand. Maybe a flush draw or a couple of overcards.
      I'm not sure though, I'd like to see the opinion of someone more experienced.. I think I might be thinking kind of recklessly.


      But on the second hand, I'm pretty sure it was the right move to go all in. At least that's what they teach us in the articles. If someone reraises at you, you always go all in with JJ+ or AK.

      For my experience, whenever I push all-in pre flop with 10's+, I usually win.

      Hand #1
      i would of pushed on the flop, you have an over pair + flush draw.
      Also your only versing 1 opponent so almost always conti-bet on the flop when your the raiser pre-flop.

      Hand #2
      Tricky situation.
      SHC says raise/re-raise against 1 raiser/re-raiser.
      So I think you played this correctly.
      I would be pushing.
      I think you are pretty safe against 1 opponent.
      Although do you use stats? (PT3 or PS Elephant)
      Because against a tight villain you can fold but a loose villain i would be more inclined to shove.

      1. I would have pushed as $2 is more than half my stack.
      2. Would have called all in based on the charts, but might have folded if i have a specific read on the opponent. ie: If he is really tight, and only pushes his best hands.

      thats it, but you need very good reads to fold!! "he is tight" is by far not enough
