      I think I played these hands badly, especially the first one, should I donkbet potsize the flop, should I check-raise? I wanted to play this safe because my advantage was so thin vs. his range and I would probably fold any reasonable bet on the turn unless the card like 9 :heart: comes :-) 2nd hand is awfully played too I think, betsizing just sucked, I had only 9 hands on him but 50/25 made me do this decision.

      hi
      first hand is close but i think i would prefer a fold without history in a 3 way pot even if he is a donk
      he may have a 9 and thinks this is the best way to protect with that many draws :) . calling is not terrible either against him imo .

      2nd hand just fold preflop . you are going into a 3 way pot with a highly dominated hand and with a short stack that is already all in
      as played if you raise make it biger (witch comits ) in order to not give good odds to a draw to call corectly
      but i have to say i dont like it at all
