      fold preflop, only 2 involved in the pot, if there were like 4-5 people calling that minraise, you could call that I think.

      as played, you have 9+2+2=13 outs, chance of nothing of those coming by the river is ~40% (miscalculated?), so you should just go all-in.

      At the time I was thinking that I have very little fold equity here. Should've just pushed though when the action got back to me on the flop. 45% equity v AA makes it a no-brainer. I missed out here. FE not required in this spot.

      MP2 possibly plays worse than me so I was tempted in. 5.5:1 express odds but still iffy PF.

      Fold preflop. I would think about calling prolly if there was at least 1 more caller.
      On the flop you almost have a monster draw. I think all in is the right play there.
      There is enough money in the pot already and you do have enough equity for making the push profitable.
