      I made a smallish re-reraise to push the rest of the players out , and try to keep the pot kinda small as well because the board was scary. He is rather passive and his reraising me again is troublesome as is the all in on turn with the scare card coming.

      Opponent is solid and he sits in the BB which means he could have a huge variety of hands. Since he is so passive as well his re-reraise troubles me and i immediately thought he might be holding the straight with 5-2 , or slowplaying a higher set. Can i find a fold here?

      can't really say anything about the first hand, tough call.

      2nd hand is pretty tough too. Though there are not many hands you could beat with a set against BB imo, you could win 2 pairs, but lose against any other set or straight. I probably would've folded after reraise at the turn with your reads. Against straight you would have 11 outs for the river, calling a reraise at turn would make you call against the odds, against another set, you'd also be far behind. Moreover I think he would've bet on the flop if he had 2 pairs made there, for value against those who have ace and protection against pockets. So imo, here aren't many hands you could beat while there are more hands that had you beat.

      1) That 40$ re-raise from MP1 don´t like me. Seems like he has set or straight or if he is aggressive then two pair or 77. The board doesn´t pair so I would fold turn.

      2) He could have two pair, straight- and flushdraw, set or straight. Turn call is fine, don´t know if you should call river. If he ise really tight then fold would be fine. You can´t beat nothing than two pair.

      2) Sure you call the river. 83 or 43 would make sense. However 25 is there too so I think i woulda played the same.

      1) In the first hand you have to raise more on the flop. You are allowing MP1 almost 4:1 even if the early position players don't come along. Make it $30ish. As played you have to put your stack in on the flop since you are given the chance. There are just too many scare cards to come on the turn for both you and MP1.
      Check this villain's stats in PT as there is an AF bug in Grab'em. 95% of all villains are passive.

      2) Your hand is very well concealed here. BB's range could well be 83,43,A3; 52 or 44 if he is a trappy sort of player (dry A high flop hoping for a bluff/value bet especially if UTG+1 is over-aggro ). Giving all hands equal weight this makes you a roughly 2:1 dog after the flop action. Not all players slowplay sets/str8's so your chances are a bit better than this (doesn't look like a bluff). NH as played and definitely not a fold nor a raise on the river with his solid stats.
