      I think I should have waited the turn to go All-in. Perhaps not on the 1st one because of a drawy board. What do you think?

      Both cases, you should have bet 2/3 of the pot, that is 0.60.. you only push if 2/3 of the pot is more than half of your stack.

      First one you could raise about $0.8, just because it is a bit drawy.

      Second one however you must bet $0.6 because board is dry.

      I think that your opponents will fold to any c-bet here and thats not always a problem as it demonstrates the power of fold equity.

      Do not overbet and maybe calculate how much 2/3 of the pot is related with your stacksize by the use of a Calculator :) ?
