      hand 1 and 2 are easy calls , but you should play your 1st hand a lot more aggresively , board is drawheavy.
      Hand 3 i d go all in on flop because of original bet and 2 callers , you get your draw around 1 out of 3 times so if at least 2 of them call you you have more than enough odds. Or you could possibly take it down right there.
      On turn with only 1 card coming id fold. You dont have the proper odds anymore.

      Thanks for comment. I don´t like to gamble and I know that BB or the other players have smt, I just have draw, but if EV+ then I should maybe check/raise all in (although I like it check/call and fold turn ui)

      I don't like raising the third hand on the flop, you're drawing to the nuts and almost getting immediate odds for it plus pretty much guaranteed implied odds, none of your outs need to be discounted and the straight won't be obvious if you make it, you're closing the action and are in the position, it would be $3.75 to call if you raised all in there, the pot's already $4 (nearly $9 after your raise), and there are three other players in. You're not getting a fold out of all of them... pretty much ever. This is a great opportunity to draw, not semi-bluff.

      For god's sake raise the first hand somewhere before the turn and make it a proper raise or just don't slow play it in the first place. You'll get a raise from any pair and even any two from so many players if you just bet that flop and a fold so often if you raise preflop.

      Also, a river blocking/value bet on the second hand should be good. You can fold to a raise.

      Thanks howard for advises.

      In HU I tend to be too passive. I think that I can check-raise here on the flop. And push it on the turn.

      I thought about blocking/value bet on the second hand later. 0,50 cents should be enough to find out where I´m at.

      50 cents is rather too small, you'll get raised by many hands that you beat.
