      When you are BB or you enter the game, you have to post BB and often you see free flop. I don´t know, if I should push or bet more with next hands.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 3:spade: , 9:diamond: . Hero posts a blind of $0,25.
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0,25, 3 folds, Hero checks, BU folds, SB calls $0,15, BB checks.

      Should bet on the turn, I don´t know if I´m ahead and if my second pair weak kicker is any good. Seems like CO bet on the flush draw or Qx. Call on the river?

      I could get stacked with that flop or check/fold turn. Betting 0,50 doesn´t make sense.

      Easy fold on the preflop, but I was a little tilt, so I decided to see flop because there was already some dead money in the pot. Generally against SSS it should be fold?

      1) i would bet a bit more (maybe even potsize) on the flop. an A will pay you off and you need to protect against fush draws. at least you should try to get all your money in until the hand ends ^^.

      2) i don´t think its +ev to post a blind in mp3 at a 9 handed table. i like check/calling the river for bluff induce.

      3) i would play check/fold all the way... its likely that someone has a K with a weak kicker and is afraid to bet (but would call your bet)

      4) with 2 callers the turn is a check/fold. i wouldn´t even bet the flop against 3. might be a bit passive but you can get into big trouble with these kind of hands.
      this case is a good example. a blank falls on the turn and when you want to protect your hand you will have to bet more than 0,50$ and then you are commited with your mediocre hand ^^

      5) preflop as you mentionend. postflop is nice imo


      imho ;)

      //edit: btw:
      this "judge-thing" belongs to the fl-sections (and even there i often talk some bullsh*t). so don´t count anything that i say here to be correct ^^

      On hand 5, if MP1 is _not_ a short stack strategy player (there are plenty of bad short stacks out there too!) then playing is fine with the dead money in the pot and his 14bb stack. It's a fold against a real SSS player but I think calling with intent to check raise most flops is right against an unknown. Maybe even against a SSS player if you play the flop well, he'll commit himself on all flops.

      2) I don´t like to wate when I get into the game. I have then two options when I enter the game: BB or CO? (imo BU was still out of the game). MP3 is one more seat behind CO.

      1) 1$ Bet Flop
      2$ Bet Turn
      Allin RIver

      2) Nice Bet Turn. In most cases your in front.
      I would Valuebet River. I think your enemy called a Draw and on Turn theres neither a Flush or Straightscarecard.

      3) Check/FOld. You dont have a MadeHand!

      4) You dont have a Madehand so dont bet versus 3enemies!

      5) Fold preflop!
