      Was I right to call the All-In (I think considering SSS I was 3 ratio to call All-In with AQ), but I think, with a raise and one more caller AQ is not a great hand). What's your oppinion?

      First hand : NH , i dont lay AQ down when i already got 1/3 of my stack in the middle.. But it looks like he plays a monster.. :P

      Second : No C-bet you got a freeplay and you dont have to put any more
      money in if your hand doesnt improve. + your out of position..

      What odds say you should make a C-bet there ?

      2nd hand c/f you have a RAAAAAAAG
      1st hand. You have alot of dead money in the pot, plus a healthy stack so there are a couple of things to consider. First, AQo plays very poorly in a multipot and you have 4 limpers eyeing your stack. Second if you are re-raised you have to push with the ratio. Third, if you get one caller your manditory conti-bet oop would be all-in. Fourth, if you got more than one caller you are pot-commited on anyflop.
      After considering this, your only remaining move is to push preflop. Thats how I would play this one.

      1st hand:
      3+ limpers = Pushing preflop as you would have to go all-in on any Flop that comes.

      2nd hand:
      Gutshot = 4 outs = weak draw = hits once in the 15,7 times based on 1 card to come.
      If you call/c-bet here you will lose money so easy check/fold
