      Hello, I would like to know your oppinion about these two hands. Any comments, suggestions, and what would have been the best moves overall, and why? Thanks in advance.

      AK:

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:
      $34,41
      Hero:
      $25,00

      0,1/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:spade: , K:diamond:
      UTG2 raises to $1,00, 4 folds, Hero raises to $3,00, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $2,00.

      Flop: ($6,35) J:club: , Q:spade: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $4,53, UTG2 raises to $9,06, Hero calls $4,53.

        a) I should or shouldn't have made a conti-bet here? Why?
        b) And if I did, what would have been the best move then? Fold, reraise, call? Why?

      Turn: ($24,47) 8:spade: (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $12,62, Hero folds.

        Even if it was a bad move to call flop, but since I've got to turn, should I have folded here, or not? And of course - why?

      Final Pot: $37,09


      AQ:

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
