      Hello Shefass,

      In the first hand, it is okay to bet this Toppair on the Flop. But generally it takes 2 barrels to let the opponent fold his curve/air ball in Freeplays so on the Turn you should also bet like $1. If he reraises, you fold and if he calls, go for a cheap showdown

      In the 2nd hand, your kicker is way better and your Pair is way better as well so betting here is a must. For the rest, it is pretty standard. 2nd barrel turn and Valuebet river if no Ace comes and no
