      1st hand - why shove river? you can imagine that you will only get called by a hand that beats you, or best case tie with you. just check behind

      2nd hand - push all in preflop (keep in mind that always when you should bet more than half stack push directly and also with more than 3 limpers (or 1 minraiser and caller) also push directly.

      3rd hand - well played

      give another read to the article that tells you how to play trash hands on the flop, turn, river etc..

      #1 You have trash, so after the villain shows strength by calling your c-bet you should consider yourself beat and play c/f till the end unless you improve on turn or river.

      #2 You reraise to more than 1/2 of your stack----> easy push preflop.

      #3 Nh.

      Hello Naturally2Bad,

      First of all I would like to point out the thread:
      Hand posting guide

      for the Hand Posting guide since with 3+ hands in a topic, the overview is lost for both the Judge and its OriginalPoster.

      #Hand 1

      Flop: C-bet to $0.75 and it is close but I fold on a Reraise
      Turn: You get an extra 4 outs due the wheeldraw so if you want, you can shove it as a 2nd barrel here with 10 outs at most. It's no shame to check it behind as well and I like the check behind here :)

      River: Just check this one and note him down with what kind of holding he went to showdown, you got Ace-high ;) isnt worth $0.93

      #Hand 2

      $0.2 times 3 plus a bb for every limper makes: ($0.2x3)+$0.2 = a Reraise to $0.8
      $0.8 is 50% of your stack so shove it Preflop with your AceKing next time ;)

      As played, shove the flop as you did but I prefer pushing preflop because we literally give 3 free cards (flop) to the opponent to see.

      #Hand 3

      Either shove the Flop immediately because you have to bet 47.5%~ of your stack at once or play Continuation Bet/Call his Reraise because you get the odds to do so

      Best regards,
