      First hand: preflop: calling minraise is pointless here, make it about 0,16-0,2

      On flop considering its NL2 you can go AI, but dont minraise. Make normal raise and call shove or push after his raise.

      Second hand: completing this trash hand is acceptable but I wouldnt do it. With TPNK you are often in bad shape and also your possible flush is fourth best.

      You can lead out on this flop but I wouldnt call his raise, if he has a set or twopair (J5 or J7) you dont get enough odds to call. If he has only a FD or SD, you are ahead but I would spare my money here and not put it in in this borderline situation.

      Agreed.

      But in the first case, after calling the miniraise, I don't like calling the all in.


      Looks like the guy was masking aces.

      Bye

      Try to post one hand per topic,

      Hand 1: You should always 3bet, definitely at these stakes at least. And considering MP3 is open-min-raising you got yet another argument to do so. Just 3-bet to 20-24c there.

      On the flop: raise properly... Min-raising is for donks. Other then that, just get the money in but you're doing that just fine.

      Hand 2: Fold pre-flop. Completing suited broadways and pocket pairs in the SB etc is ok but completing suited garbage is something you shouldn't do.

      As played I would go broke under normal circumstances cause I know I'm almost flipping against overpairs & Jx hands but there's only 18c in the pot which is gonna go towards rake anyway so I think folding here would be the best option.

      +1
      1) I think getting all-in on the flop is fine, I´d 3-bet pf though
      2) your hand isn´t that strong to call overshove. I´d b/f to shove
