      Hello,

      Hand 1
      No point to bet at all just Check/Fold on all streets.

      Hand 2
      What's his 3bet? It looks correct line. I would have done the same. He could be easily just defending the blind.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      You can't c-bet if you're not preflop aggressor, so c/f all the way if you don't hit your set.

      Nice hand according to raise : stack ratio + I always go broke with AQ in LP/blind battle(except if reads/stats advise me otherwise).

      FOLD PREFLOP, no odds/implieds ag. this minraise! If you decide to play 77 , then shove preflop for the best hand.
