      should bet a little more imo on the flop, turn i can hardly bet since i dont want to get raised and lots of draws got there. I would probably call up to a 2/3rd ps bet. River i am totally uncertain about. if i bet i might get weak calls from two pairs, but the bet doesn't look like a bluff but might induce him to bluff. c/c river?

      imo i should push pf or fold, since i can barely play any flop unless i hit a set. is this correct and could i call this flop?

      the minraise could obviously mean a lot of different things, i want value from an A or protect against sd. turn then is an easy push

      normally not a big slowplay fan, but is this a good spot to give him a chance to improve or bluff the turn?

      1) c/c or c/f river. $4 on the flop.

      2) after the preflop action you cant call the flop with an overcard. preflop is fine, nice hand.

      3) nh

      4) nh, but you could also just call the flop and bet on the turn if he checks. you should vary your play here.

      5) against a BSS you should raise about $12 and probably fold to a push.

      6) raise preflop. then bet the flop, bet the turn, bet the river. the problem you encounter when you check the flop is that you only gain little value since the pot is very small after the flop check. you should use every chance on every street to give your opponent the opportunity to give YOU money.

      the logic is following, my hand has a good chance of being best, so folding isn't really an option i like too much, if i am ahead, he has 6 outs with his overcards to my 88 or the better hand with an overpair.
      If I raise, he cant call with AK but wouldn't fold TT-AA probably (some would, but those guys are pretty rare).
      Now he folds with likely overcards or a worse PP and I take the pot down and dont give him a shot to outdraw me and i avoid a potentially tough turn decision, if for example a K would fall on the turn, if he is just barreling again with AQ etc, since he would only call with better hands and I can find a relatively easy fold against further action.

      Looking at those hands again, i now like the flat call a little better though and would fold against another turn bet or raise a little bit less (around 17-18$)
