      Is my fold correct here? I had 3 aces and 3 kings to the TPTK and 4 queens to the nut straight. That's 10 outs. And the board is rainbow. But the $2 bet gives me bad pot odds. I think I am correct to fold but I might be wrong.

      Hello,

      Hand 1:
      Turn: I am not betting here because he looks like a Calling station and you don't have a made hand.
      River: Pretty bad move to shove here, he could easily have Ace here and you would be crushed. Just Check/Call here, depending on the betsize.

      Hand 2:
      Nice hand, well played.

      Next time post those hands into different threads. :P

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Hand 1, I never go broke with idiot end straight, just valuebetting is sufficient and I am folding against any resistance.

      so Turn I would check and bet like $0.55 on the river if the Pot is still $0.85

      Hand 2, I would shove postflop after they check to you or completely give up. THey might have AT/AJ/KJ/KT which you then have to discount 3 outs

      I might lean to shove on NL25 but checking behind for a free card isnt bad too

      o_O That's easiest c/f. You only have straight that is already on the table and nothing beside Ax will call you there.
