      Hi Ulek!

      1) I would bet 3/4 potsize on the flop to protect the hand against straight and flushdraws. On the turn I would also bet 3/4 potsize. I would also call his minraise. Because the river is a blank I would check/call to induce a bluff from worse hands.

      2) After his big flopbet (more than potsize) I would interpret his turnbet as weakness (maybe a blocking bet to see a cheap river card with a flushdraw?). Concerning this I would raise on the turn. And I would definitely raise on the river. There are not many hands which beat your hand.

      3) Nice hand! :)

      Good luck at the tables!

      hand1) i make it 3.5$ on the flop and bet the turn for 3/4 potsizeon turn; if he minraises we need a read it's a really safe card so maybe he had a set/2pair on the flop; a fold is not bad vs and unknow but I find it pretty difficult to do because you see so many bad players on 50nl

      hand2) i'm not a big fan of just calling the flop , i like to know where i'm with my hand so i reraise it to 15$. (the 4$ bet is most of the times weakness so he's scared of the J or his weak A doesn't look so good anymore after you called his flopbet) As played i would just reraise somewhere :p

      hand3) i play it the same

      hand 1 i agree with above
      hand 2 his flop donk overbet doesnt make much sense , it seems like an attempt to make you to fold without him investing too much , or else he would checkraise with a good hand. I would prolly call flop and reraise turn since no draws complete there.
      hand 3 i would prolly check behind on turn and call his bet on the river. He could call again , or checkraise and then you cant call with that hand. Check behind could also induce a bluff. In most cases anyway if you dont make the pot bigger on turn , you wont have to pay more on the river than the 7$ that you bet on turn.
