      Hello again,

      i just don`t know how to play this hand correct...
      Flop, i thought of checking, because not many hands (except high FDs will call here)
      but flop has a fd so betting was fine (should i bet higher, or is the sizing fine?)

      second => raising the flop to get it in?

      turn
      just calling, or better to raise?

      river....

      quiet ugly, because flush completes
      it could be a trap from villain to check here...

      so check behind, bet fold?

      The point is now you are missed a lot of value when he floped sets or 2 pairs. Or he lost minimum by having a huge draw. He can also x/raise as a bluff on the river and then you have to fold.
      To prevent all this bet higher flop reraise his raise. Bet or raise turn for value. River is tricky, so when you build the pot till river you can check behind now.

      simply push river. Even if villain bluff raises some of flush draws on flop, he would mostly bet flushes on river so you can put him mostly on total air that folds anyway or some sets, 2 pair. Flop i would 3bet due to being draw heavy board.

      I found you very passive on the flop and on the turn, having to play those big hands aggressively so it would raise right on the flop (charging 2pairs, FD, sets and etc). Fast play your big hands

      66 set hand is almost overplay to 3bet unless he is super agro with bluff raises or merges top pairs. board is connected offering many straights so it differs from your KK hand a lot.

      First hand is stack-off on flop, no need to slow play.
      Second hand if different, middle set conected bord, no nuts on flop...
