      Waited until BB reaches me, then I could sit out. Check/raise- this means mostly only one thing: set. I thought that he was some kind of draw or he had middle pair and he put me on Ax. Bet/fold flop?

      Same problem here, how I can fold my aces:D He could easily have 77, 88, TT, JJ. Is folding an option?

      I think that I can fold here 99. If I´m lucky then it is race against overcards but they tend to have TT-AA

      Hand 1 with your double stack you could maybe fold but there are so many draws that he could semibluff that i would probably go all in. Depends a lot on your reads too ofc.

      Hand 2 is easy call. Cant fold it.

      Hand 3 is an easy fold unless you have a specific read that the BB resteals too often in which case with the dead money around you can make a call.

      Thanks for comment. I think that I could fold hand 1, although folding overpair is just too weak:) I would play the same with the set and I still could walk away 6,5$. Maybe next time I can decide right on that difficult decision:)
