      Raise, min-reraise and flat call. I think it is suicide to go all-in pre-flop and also I don´t like to fold my jacks, so I call for set value. Not sure, if I would go all-in if there was also only low cards.

      There was two options for me, check flop or go all-in. I didn´t like the board so I tried to checked it down all the way. Maybe 1$ bet on the turn for value, fold equity and free showdown.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) I think you have to push all-in preflop. Have a look at this article - especially at "reacting to a raise behind you". Your stack size : bet size ratio is 3.65:1.
      The entry in the chart determines that at a ratio between 4:1 and 2.5:1 you have to push all-in with AA-TT, AK and AQ. Since you have JJ you have to go all-in.

      Hand 2) Nice hand! The board is too scary. Besides that you are up against two opponents.
