      Hey golicowcy,

      #1

      I would bet out myself because you don't want to scare away your opponent with a check/raise. And I would continue aggression on the turn and river to get as much value out of villain as possible.

      #2

      Openraise is fine, but only if you oR 3big blinds other hands as well. However, after villain resteals you there's no point in 4-betting smallish, just shove as you would with any other hand.

      Regards,

      As played I think your checkraise in hand #1 is too small. I make it $0.75 or $1 to build up the pot quicker. I've noticed your raise sizes seem a bit small in a couple of spots in your various sample hands.

      I like 2/3rds to potsize bets in general and it might be useful for you to look up how to make a potsize raise as well. (a potsize raise gives villain 2 to 1 pot odds for a call)
