      1st of all it's horrible to read the hand without any suit.
      2nd use a hand converter.
      3rd you are posting into wrong section, your 1st hand.
      4th don't post two hands into one thread.

      Hand 1

      Flop: Depending on the suits and such stuff, I might even consider folding here. Seems like a set or hit a straight.

      Hand 2

      Flop: I would likely just Call and reevaluate further streets, he wont Call your raise with a lot of worse hand.

      Best regards,

      thanks for the evaluation.

      I did use a hand converter but the suits werent copied in...
      the boards were rainbow in both hands..

      I dont think he could have a straight in the first hand, because he wouldnt have called my preflop bet with 52...
      and my bet was also high so I didnt believe that he would call with such a low pair.
      I was almost sure he had QQ or KK, maybe AQ or possibli AK as me.

      Also in the second example it was almost impossible for him to have a 2 since he called my PFR. And with AA or KK I would expect him to reraise PF.
      The only handthat would explain his play was a lower pocket pair or maybe A10 since he started betting.
      In that hand it came out that he was slowplaying aces.
