      Hey Bogdan1190,

      #1

      Fold preflop. :P

      As played, flop and turn are well played, but on the river your 2-pair becomes worthless with 4 hearts on the board, so just c/f river, because opponent will almost never bet without a heart there himself.

      #2

      This is a superugly spot. Calling here makes little sense because that way you just commit yourself to any flop, therefore your 2 options are push and try to isolate the CO as he has such a small stack or you fold, because there's another player behind you and KQ is quite weak hand equity wise. I think sticking to basic strategy on NL2 would be the best and just fold to the 3-bet, this is easy way to stay out of trouble as a beginner.

      Regards,
