      In the first hand, I think a call to the donkybet would be ok, but I think I would have folded because of the other opponent, I think its pretty likely than one of them has an A.
      As played, fold to the reraise.

      In the second one, you should have raised preflop 3 times the amount of the iniitial bet that is 0.90, as it is more than half of your stack you should have pushed there.
      As played, made hand on the flop, so push there.

      hand #1:

      - preflop is fine of course.

      - on flop That mindonk bet is anoying and you can call , however a smallish raise doesn't chase better hands or gets more value of worse. So my line would be call the bet and fold if SB check-raises since then he has you beat very very often.

      hand #2:

      preflop : reraise all in preflop

      flop : you have less than the size of the pot so bet all in.

      turn : check behind is baaad , if you are still with chips then push turn.

      river : call is good , but you should actually be all in preflop :D

      Hello Habacusesaro,

      First hand:

      Preflop is okay but just fold on the Flop even though it's a minbet, you don't know what is going to happen after you Postflop and/or on the Turn. With 2 outs, you need 22.5:1 instantly to be profitable and even then the K will complete a Flush

      Second hand:
      Preflop: reraise to $0.9 and since that is >50% of your stack you have to go all-in there.

      As played go all-in on the Flop! this is a must-do otherwise you lose Value.

      I recommend you to re-read the SSS articles to see how/when you must bet or fold in certain situations

      Best regards,
      Gerv
