      Is there any other way to play these hands and what should i do on the flop?

      UTG2 = ($24.75)
      MP1 = ($5.77)
      MP2 = ($4.30)
      MP3 = ($25.00)
      CO = ($37.17)
      BU(Hero) = ($25.00)
      SB = ($30.03)
      BB = ($4.97)
      UTG1 = ($6.20)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q :club: , Q :diamond: .
      4 folds, MP3 raises to $0.85, CO folds, Hero raises to $2.75, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $4.40, Hero calls $2.50.

      Flop: ($10.85) 8 :diamond: , 7 :spade: , J :spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $9.50.


      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      BU = ($21.82)
      SB = ($20.06)

      UTG2 = ($25.00)
      MP1 = ($5.32)
      MP2 = ($11.59)
      MP3 = ($4.25)
      CO(Hero) = ($23.30)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J :diamond: , J :heart: .
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.85, BU folds, SB raises to $2.90, BB folds, Hero calls $2.15.

      Flop: ($6.25) 8 :heart: , 5 :club: , 7 :club: (3 players)

      Some reads or just the vibe you get from these villains would be helpful. Also posting only 1 hand per thread is better unless it pertains to specific history with the same villain or to the same kind of spot.

      First hand is really ugly, raise/min3bet then pot that drawy flop is a scary line from an unknown. If you saw him do weird stuff already shoving is likely fine with an overpair, but to be honest i think you'll see KK+ there more often than anything else so i'd just pass on it and fold this time.

      Second hand is somewhat ugly too without reads but i'm more inclined to call, as i see no reason for him to just jam that flop with QQ+ really. Plus his 80bb stack pretty much indicates that he is bad, so unless he's just shoving his overpair because he's afraid of the board or just doesn't know what to do, you'll likely see random crap often enough.

      Hope it helps.
