      Hello,

      In first place I think you should have fold pre-flop since you were under the gun and there for not in position with a weak hand. There is stiill seven people to act behind you and you could be easily dominated ( AQ AK QQ KK AA). That s why you ve got a probleme when you have the queen on the flop, because you are out of position it is very hard for you to determine if your top pair nice kiker is good or not.
      I don t think it is too bad to call the min raise as if It s a bluff the villain would certainly shut down after.
      To check the turn is the best option IMO ( and then folding if he bets ).
      It s annoyn that he make a very smal bet on the turn... I think It s a fold or raise there. With a raise you certainly going to get re raise as an answer if he has a good hand so you will know he has the good.
      On the river It was definetly a fold, you have to learn to fold top pair...

      For the KK hand I think you could have re raise slightly bigger like 0.20, Then the continuation bet was fine as the raiser was on the button, he might not have the ace even if he called your reraise.
      Then on the turn I would just check fold, then again you might have more balls than me....
      On the river it s a definite fold as he could have been slow playin Tens. But next time he won t get so lucky as his call with A10 before the flop was just horrible.

      depends a lot of the players, against passive players you can c-bet/fold at 1st hand and c/f or c/c turn and c/f river at second hand
